Saturday night around 9 p.m. Trooper Josh Bayly was north bound on SR 1 in the area of Fagan Rd. when he clocked a south bound Buick at 68 M.P.H. in the 55 M.P.H zone.

After speaking with the driver, Angela French, age 42 of Connersville and her two male occupants, Bayly became suspicious. Hagerstown Police Department Officer Ryan Clark was nearby with his K-9 partner and came to assist Bayly. Officer Clark walked his K-9 partner around the outside of the vehicle and the dog alerted to the presence of narcotics.

It's alleged that further investigation revealed pills and Methamphetamine in the vehicle. The driver, Angela French, was arrested, facing allegations of Possession of a Legend Drug, Level 5 Felony, and Possession of Methamphetamine, Level 6 Felony. In addition French was found to be wanted on warrant alleging Domestic Violence out of Howard County. French was lodged in the Wayne County Jail.
