A Burnet County Sheriff’s Deputy reportedly arrested a woman on RR 1431 yesterday. She was having problems with her overheated Nissan SUV and the Deputy stopped to help her about 3:15 in the morning. He ran the plates and found she had an outstanding warrant and expired registration. A Burnet K-9 unit was called for and the dog alerted. That led to a vehicle search that revealed 5.7 grams of methamphetamine, 4 grams of marijuana, a scale and a “meth” pipe. The Kingsland woman was arrested and bonded out the same day.
The Burn Ban has been lifted in Lampasas Co. until Sunday at 7pm.
