A 27-year-old Stock Island woman was arrested for DUI Wednesday following a traffic stop after she was found to be in possession of a litany of drugs.

Randi Rachelle Ward was charged with DUI (her fourth in 10 years), failure to register as a convicted felon, and myriad drug-related violations including fentanyl, cocaine, amphetamine, and marijuana possession.

  • 5.7 grams of synthetic marijuana
  • 3.5 grams of marijuana
  • 5.5 grams of amphetamine
  • .4 grams of fentanyl
