REDDING, Calif. – A woman was arrested early Saturday morning after the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office pulled her over on the southbound Interstate 5 on-ramp at Oasis Road, within the Redding city limits.

Sheriff’s Office officials said the officer who pulled over 38-year-old Misty Forsyth of Redding said when the woman stepped out of the vehicle several Ziploc style baggies with methamphetamine were located.

Forsyth was the only person in the vehicle at the time, which was a dark green Chevrolet Prism. A search of the vehicle revealed more than 30 grams of meth and 4.4 grams of heroin, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities said they also discovered additional packaging materials, a digital scale, and approximately $700 – money they believed to be indicative of narcotic sales.

Forsyth was arrested and booked at the Shasta County Jail for possession and transportation charges, and for an outstanding warrant for a work release violation. The photo below is from a previous booking of Forsyth at the Shasta County Jail.

The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office is looking for more information and would like people to call into SHASCOM at (530) 245-654 if they can assist officers investigating this incident.
