Traffic stop leads to discovery of meth, marijuana, throwing stars

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Two women were arrested Monday afternoon after giving false names to a Sheriff's Deputy who pulled them over.

The deputy was driving in the area of Bruce and Lee about 1:40 p.m. when he spotted a Chevy van being driven with basketball-sized spider cracks in front of the driver's portion of the windshield.

He stopped the van and arrested the driver, 33-year-old Shawn Hepburn, for driving with a suspended license.

The deputy then asked the passengers their identities so he could release the van to one of them if they had a valid license. One identified herself with the name of the woman the deputy had arrested the week before. He then arrested her for Making False Statements and identified her as 26-year-old Heidi L. Franklin, a convicted felon wanted for Escape from Community Custody.

He then confronted the second woman about the name she had given and eventually identified her as 36-year-old Lisa M. Bauer, a convicted felon also wanted for Escape from Community Custody.

In searching Franklin's backpack, the deputy found a vial containing meth, marijuana seeds, used syringes and other meth paraphernalia. In a second pack, he found six throwing stars with double-cutting edges and her Department of Corrections inmate identification.

The deputy searched Bauer's purse and found small containers with meth, two digital drug scales, a cellular phone, marijuana and more than $600 cash.

Both women were arrested and booked into jail on their on their felony warrants and drug charges.
