LEWISBURG - A routine traffic stop landed a woman behind bars after officers discovered active warrants for her arrest.
Melissa Adkins, 50, was charged with being a fugitive from justice. Lewisburg Police Chief Tim Stover said that when his officers pulled over a red van for improper registration, they found an active warrant with full extradition on Adkins out of Pratt, Kansas. The warrant was for failing to appear for a violation on a controlled substance charge.
She remained in Southern Regional Jail without bond.
