Deputies with the Pearl River County Sheriff’s Department assisted Picayune Police officers with a traffic stop involving an occupant who was identified as a wanted suspect.
On June 19, officers spoke with Brandy Ann Treadway, 39, of 927 East Canal Street, who had warrants for possession of a controlled substance and conspiracy to commit credit card fraud, Chief Deputy Shane Tucker said.
Treadway was wanted by the Picayune Police Department for allegedly using a stolen credit card to purchase items at several stores totaling $515, Picayune Assistant Chief Jeremy Magri said. Treadway initially gave a false name to deputies, Tucker said.
Previous coverage states that deputies unsuccessfully attempted to locate her at her home May 17 for those warrants.
During the stop on June 19, deputies located a purse, containing a metal pipe along with various other types of drug paraphernalia, which was thrown under the vehicle. They later determined it belonged to Treadway, Tucker said.
Deputies also found a small plastic bag containing a crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine, he said.
Treadway was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence, presenting false identifying information to law enforcement, 29 counts of possession of paraphernalia, one count of contempt of court and one count of credit card fraud. She is held in the Pearl River County jail on a $27,000 bond, according to jail records.
