Woman arrested after pills found during traffic stop

A 38-year-old Marathon woman was arrested Monday afternoon after more than 100 Oxycodone pills and more than $1,500 in cash were found.

Alexandra Lisa Artiles was charged with trafficking in Oxycodone pills.

Deputy William Daniels stopped a white Kia sedan on U.S. 1 at Grassy Key because the license plate was obstructed. Other Deputies and K9 Coral also responded. K9 Coral alerted to drugs in the vehicle.

Artiles agreed to a search and several Oxycodone pills were found in her possession. More were found in the car. A total of 120 Oxycodone pills were found as well as $1,568 in suspected drug proceeds.

Artiles was taken to jail.
