Traffic Stop Leads to Meth Arrest

A missing driver's license and the failure to making a proper signal to turn lead to the arrest of two people, as well as the seizure of 16 grams of meth.

Wichita Falls Police made a traffic stop around 8:15 p.m. last night on Airport Road near the Central Freeway Access Road. Officers approached the Chrysler van and asked the driver, 29-year-old Pedro Suarez, for his driver's license. However, Suarez did not have his license.

Police say that's when they asked Suarez if they could search the van. Suarez consented, and when K9 Officer "Turko" was brought to the scene he alerted officers to the odor of narcotics.

Police say they discovered just over 16-grams of meth and a firearm.

The arrest affidavit stated that Suarez had been convicted in 2006 on a charge of robbery. For that reason, he was charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon.

Suarez was also charged with Manufacture and Delivery of a Controlled Substance. His passenger, 28-year-old Tara Purvis, was also arrested and charged with Manufacture and Delivery of a Controlled Substance.
