May 7, 2020
PULLMAN – Two women were booked into Whitman County Jail for possession of heroin April 30 following a traffic stop.
Whitman County Deputy Tyler Langerveld pulled over a U-Haul vehicle on SR 195 near Armstrong Road for speeding just after 12:30 a.m. Thursday morning.
The driver, Teleshia Reynold, 30, Lewiston, allegedly stated she realized she was speeding. Seated in a lawn chair on the middle of a cab with no seatbelt was Katrina Taylor, 50, of Clarkston. Both exhibited signs or recent heroin use and Deputy Langerveld observed drug paraphernalia in the vehicle. There was also a male passenger seated in the front.
Deputy Langerveld questioned Reynold separately from the passengers and received conflicting stories. During a search of the vehicle and a backpack, Langerveld located "numerous pieces" of used drug paraphernalia with heroin residue on them, according to the arrest report.
Reynold and Taylor were both arrested for heroin use and the male passenger was allowed to leave.
