A woman was arrested on a drug charge on Wednesday after she allegedly passed an 18-wheeler and ran a red light.

Chief Ron Gilbert of the Onalaska Police Department said at approximately 1 p.m., he stopped a motorist who passed an 18-wheeler and ran a red light on U.S. Highway 190.

Gilbert said he asked the driver if he could search her vehicle. When the woman refused, he suspected probable cause and searched the vehicle. He allegedly found a bag filled with crystal methamphetamine.

The woman was arrested at the scene and transported to the Polk County Jail.

Gilbert said he thought the woman was traveling from College Station to Livingston.
