CALDWELL — A Parma woman was arrested for drug trafficking and DUI on new year's eve.

On December 31, 2018, around 5:30 p.m., Canyon County dispatchers received a call from a witness reporting a possible intoxicated driver heading into Caldwell from I-84. The caller followed the driver until officers arrived in the area.

According to police, the vehicle was pulled over by officers near S. Indiana and Ustick. The driver, Lindsey Martin, 36, of Parma, told officers she was on her way to pick up her child.

After an investigation, she was detained on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs, said Caldwell Police.

Police searched her vehicle and found about 10 grams of suspected heroin and items of drug paraphernalia. Officers also found over an ounce of suspected methamphetamine which she was hiding, officials said.

A drug recognition expert evaluated Martin, and she was charged with driving under the influence of a central nervous system stimulant and narcotics.

Martin was booked into the Canyon County Jail on Trafficking Heroin, Trafficking Methamphetamine, DUI (Stimulant/Narcotic) and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia charges.
