GEORGETOWN, Del.- Georgetown police say a traffic stop on a woman wanted for shoplifting led to the discovery of heroin and drug paraphernalia in her car.

Samantha J. Smith, 23, of Georgetown, was stopped Friday morning on East Laurel Street on a warrant charging her with shoplifting from the Royal Farms store in Georgetown on June 24.

“We were watching the area where she lived because there was a warrant out for her arrest,” said Lt. Lawrence Grose, of the Georgetown Police Department.

Officers found two baggies of heroin, as well as burnt spoons and syringes, in Smith’s car, according to Grose. She was also driving on a suspended license and found to be wanted on numerous capiases out of local courts, Grose said.

Smith was charged with possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia, shoplifting and driving on a suspended license. She is being held at the Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institute on $3,000 secured bond.
