A woman was arrested near Calistoga on Tuesday after a deputy found her carrying methamphetamine.

A Napa Sheriff's Office deputy was parked on Highway 29 north of Tubbs Lane when a vehicle passed him, according to the Sheriff's Office.

He noticed the license plate was covered with plastic. However, he was able to check the plate’s history and he found the vehicle had false tags on its registration, the Sheriff's Office said. The deputy made a traffic stop for the vehicle code violations.

The passenger of the car, Michelle Robertson, 40, a Sonoma transient, admitted that she had drugs in her bra, the Sheriff's Office said. The drug was tested later and found to be methamphetamine.

Robertson was booked into Napa County Department of Corrections, along with the driver of the vehicle, who had a warrant out for his arrest.
