POLICE BLOTTER: Traffic stop leads to meth arrests

Following are some of the offenses investigated and reported by Weatherford police for the period 6 a.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Tuesday:

Meth arrests

A traffic stop early Saturday morning in the 400 block of East Sixth Street led to the reported arrests of two males, both 17, on charges of possessing methamphetamine.

Police said an officer stopped a 2006 Kia four-door for a defective tail light. The officer reportedly requested and obtained consent to search the car and allegedly found a pink, crystal-like substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.

Christopher Z. Guevara and Cordell M. Morgan were taken into custody and transported to the Parker County Jail, police said.

Vehicle burglary

A woman in the 300 block of West Spring Street on Saturday night reported her pickup truck was burglarized sometime between 10 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. that night. Someone reportedly was able to unlock the truck’s door through a vent window and removed multiple items including two shopping bags full of clothing, a multi-colored make-up bag, prescription medication, a flat iron, numerous items of cosmetics and two backpacks containing school supplies.

Parked vehicle hit

A woman in the 300 block of East Lee Avenue reported Friday morning her white pickup truck was struck while it was parked on the street.

The vehicle had scuff marks along the left side. The left side mirror had been knocked loose causing the disconnection of the electrical components of the mirror. The left front tire rim was bent, and the woman advised  the truck was driving like the tires were out of alignment. The damage was estimated at about $1,000.

Officer assaulted

Police about 6:22 p.m. Saturday were called to a residence in the 700 block of East Anderson Street regarding a disturbance.

Two officers were reportedly confronted there by an intoxicated female, and a third officer later arrived. The woman allegedly struck one of the officers in the face and was arrested. Lisa Peters, 45, was charged with intentionally causing bodily injury to a public servant and booked into Parker County Jail.
