WAGNER - A Wagner woman is accused of eluding police and possessing meth.

On Feb. 25, Wagner officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle that did not have license plates, but did have paper plates in the windows. The driver of the vehicle did not stop at officers' commands, according to court documents. It eventually slid off the road into a snowbank.

The driver, 35-year-old JoAnn Johnson, was arrested and searched, and police found a clear bottle in her pocket containing a liquid that tested positive for meth.

Johnson was charged with felony delivery of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance. If convicted of both offenses, she could face up to seven years in prison and a $14,000 fine.
