Traffic stop leads to drug charge, probation for MC woman


A Flippin woman pled guilty to drug-related charges during a session of Baxter County Circuit Court last Thursday and was put on probation for six years.

Thirty-two-year-old Barbara Lutz was stopped by a Cotter policeman in early February. He had checked the license plate on the vehicle she was driving, which showed to be on a 2007 silver Mazda, but Lutz was in a silver jeep.

Lutz also had a valid warrant out of Mountain Home and her driver's license had been suspended. She acknowledged the suspended driver's license and the active warrant and was arrested.

The officer conducted a vehicle inventory finding a bottle of Oxycodone prescribed to a different person, and Lutz was charged with possession of a controlled substance.
