North Platte Police arrested two women overnight after they stopped their car for no license plates.

The trouble started around 1:30 a.m. an officer on patrol saw a silver Pontiac Grand Prix without license plates and could not determine the date of in-transit stickers.

He stopped the car near E. Second and Cottonwood.

The in-transit tags were expired and the driver, Latonya Alexander, 41, was wanted for contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to a police report.

Alexander is also known as Latonya Tyan and Latonya Campbell.

The officer thought that she may have been driving under the influence. A DUI investigation was conducted but was negative. The officer summoned a Lincoln County deputy and drug detection dog, which inspected (sniff searched) the vehicle. The dog indicated the odor of narcotics.

A search of the car turned up drug paraphernalia that is commonly used in smoking marijuana, plus trace amounts of marijuana, police said.

Latonya was taken to jail and charged for the active warrant. Also, she was cited for no proof of ownership/expired in-transits, no valid registration, plus marijuana infractions.

Her passenger, Trisha Williams, 27, was charged with a theft that was reported April 15 by Premier Rentals, 105 N. Jeffers. The rental store said Williams rented around $2,300 of electronics and then attempted to pawn the items.

A Premier Rentals employee told police that Williams was contacted to return the items, but she failed to do so, so the police were contacted.

Williams is charged with felony theft by deception, and she is also charged with criminal mischief, according to sheriff’s records.
