Police: Women found with hypodermic needles stuffed in bra, groin after traffic stop
OKLAHOMA CITY – A traffic stop that started with a broken tail light ended with three people in custody on an array of charges.
On Aug. 17, officers stopped a vehicle near N.W 16th St. and MacArthur Blvd. for a broken tail light.
While the vehicle was stopped, officers said they noticed several people in the backseat moving around.
When they asked 32-year-old Robert Hightower for his identification, the arrest affidavit claims that Hightower handed them a wallet with an ID that does not belong to him. While looking into that ID, officers say they learned that the wallet was stolen during a robbery.
At the same time, officers say 26-year-old Kayla Moore was acting nervous. The affidavit claims that Moore admitted to having hypodermic needles stuffed into her bra. Authorities say they found four needles and two of them appeared to be loaded with a substance that resembled methamphetamine.
When officers began searching 46-year-old Teresa Gilbert, the report alleges that Gilbert admitted to having five hypodermic syringes in her groin.
Hightower was arrested for receiving and concealing stolen property, while Gilbert was arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Moore was also arrested for possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
