Industrial Drive Traffic Stop

Fite alleged the driver, identified in arrest reports as Paula Maria Lucero, failed to give straight forward answers and seemed nervous when he spoke to her.

The 49-year-old Stockton, California woman was taken into custody at 3:16 a.m. Thursday. Deputy Nick Marney arrived at the scene to complete an inventory of the car prior to it being impounded. Fite transported Lucero to jail.
