Traffic stop leads to two arrests in New Castle

Courier-Times Staff Report

A New Castle woman and her male passenger were arrested early Friday morning after their car was stopped for driving left of center.

Trooper Jacob Ridgway was driving through New Castle on Broad Street around 2:45 a.m. Friday when an eastbound car allegedly crossed the center line into the westbound lane and nearly hit Ridgway’s fully marked police car in the area of 21st Street.

Ridgway turned around and got the car stopped near the intersection of Broad and 29th streets. A second State Trooper and New Castle police officers arrived on the scene as Ridgway spoke with the driver, identified as Alicia Moore, 28 of New Castle.

The New Castle K9 officer reportedly alerted to the presence of contraband inside the vehicle.

Further investigation by the officers found that Moore was allegedly in possession of a liquid that tested positive for methamphetamine. The vehicle passenger, Dallas Titus, 31 of Hagerstown, was found to be wanted on a Henry County Felony warrant for Delinquent Child Support.

Moore was lodged in the Henry County Jail on preliminary charges of Level 6 felonies possession of methamphetamine and maintaining a common nuisance as well as a preliminary misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance. Titus was lodged in the Henry County Jail on the warrant.
