WATERVILLE, Maine — A Vassalboro woman is facing a drug charge after contraband was found during a traffic stop on Thursday night, police said.

Elizabeth Munster, 32, also had two outstanding warrants for failing to appear on an operating after suspension charge, according to Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey.

A vehicle in which Munster was a passenger was pulled over on Elm Street around 11 p.m. for a traffic violation, Rumsey said. Officers quickly learned of her warrants and placed her under arrest.

During a subsequent search at the scene, a hypodermic needle and half a bottle of crack cocaine were found, resulting in a charge of unlawful possession of a schedule drug.

The driver, Donald Gordon, 47, of Augusta, was summoned for marijuana possession but not arrested.
