Amarillo Police Arrest Two People After Traffic Stop

Amarillo Police arrest one woman on warrants and another woman on drug charges.
AMARILLO -- On Sunday at 9:00 p.m., an Amarillo Police investigator in an unmarked vehicle recognized Melody Renae Carter, 35, that he knew was wanted on a felony warrant.  

Carter was driving a red Ford pickup.  The officer requested assistance and a marked patrol unit stopped the pickup in the 800 block of N. Apache.  

The driver initially gave a false name, but the officers confirmed that Carter was the wanted person.  

Carter was arrested and booked into the Potter County Detention Center on the outstanding parole violation warrant from a narcotics conviction and a charge of failure to identify while a fugitive.  

Officers found a zippered bag similar to a bank bag in the front seat of the vehicle.  The bag contained approximately 64 grams of what is believed to be methamphetamine, approximately 90 prescription pills of various types, and a small quantity of marijuana.  

The investigation led officers to link the narcotics to 28-year-old Billie Jeanne Ramirez, a passenger in the vehicle.  She was booked into the Potter County Detention Center on charges of possession of a controlled substance over 4 grams/under 200 grams, possession of dangerous drugs, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
