An Arizona woman has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after she stole a car in California.
According to ABC 15, Teresa Gregory, 29, of Prescott, Arizona, was stopped on Highway 69 for speeding. Upon further investigation, officers found she was driving without a license. Gregory initially told officers the vehicle was hers and then changed the story, saying it belonged to a friend. As Gregory’s passenger, 34-year-old Jason Benstead from California, was asked to step outside the vehicle, officers noticed a glass pipe on the seat and found three grams of meth underneath the passenger’s seat.
Gregory finally admitted to stealing the car in California and even stole a license plate from another vehicle to put on the stolen car. Gregory was arrested on driving under the influence of drugs, theft of a vehicle, display of fictitious plates, possession of meth and drug paraphernalia and driving with a suspended license. Benstead has also been arrested for theft of a vehicle and possession of meth; both Benstead and Gregory remain in custody.
