RENO, NV - A routine traffic stop led to an arrest of a female passenger for multiple warrants out of the Las Vegas area.
Thursday afternoon at approximately 2:05 pm, a trooper with the Nevada Highway Patrol conducted a traffic enforcement stop on a vehicle displaying fictitious registration on US 395 near Oddie Blvd.
The vehicle stopped was a gray Mazda 4-door sedan displaying Nevada license plates belonging to a Jeep. The right front passenger riding in the sedan, 26-year-old Patricia M. Pinna of Sun Valley, told the trooper she did not have any identification with her when asked. However, when she exited the vehicle, her Nevada identification card was observed on the floor of the car.
A records check was requested and the trooper was advised that Pinna had a felony no-bail warrant from the Clark County District Court charging her with possession of a stolen vehicle. Additionally, there were nine non-extraditable misdemeanor warrants for her arrest stemming from previous offenses in the Las Vegas area.
Pinna was placed under arrest and taken to the Washoe County Detention Facility and booked on the no-bail felony warrant. Once extradited to Clark County for the felony warrant, she will be held on the misdemeanor warrants until they are cleared.
The driver received a citation for the registration violation and the car was towed away and impounded until proper registration could be produced.
