GRANITE CITY, Ill. (KMOX) –  A Granite City woman was taken into custody on drug charges following a traffic stop late last week.

27-year-old Melissa Richmond was pulled over Friday for having an improper registration plate on her car, and was found to have a suspended driver’s license.

Acting on an anonymous tip, officers searched Richmond’s car and found Alprazolam, a controlled substance for which she did not have a prescription.

Richmond was arrested for unlawful possession of a controlled substance with bond set at $15,000.
