Gomez was arrested on Dec. 19 during a traffic stop. Gomez was a passenger in the vehicle and an officer recognized her as having a warrant in Steele County for failing to appear at a hearing.

The officer searched the vehicle and found 11.44 grams of methamphetamine, a scale and two drug ledgers, among other items.

A review of Gomez’s criminal record shows multiple convictions for drug possession. She is also awaiting sentencing for a felony third-degree possession of three grams or more of cocaine/heroin/methamphetamine conviction in Steele County.
