The trooper recognized the driver and Husted as possible controlled substance suspects from previous intelligence and after smelling marijuana in the vehicle ordered a K-9 to search the car.

White, powdery substances were found in Husted's purse and during a body search at the Scotts Bluff County Jail. Also seized was a number of Diezepam pills which is a schedule four drug.

Husted is charged with two counts of distribution of methamphetamine from a previous incident in November and possession of meth with intent to deliver and possession of Diezepam from Saturday's stop.
