A truck driver hauling a load of frozen chicken from California was arrested in Ridgefield Wednesday morning.
Washington State Patrol said the truck and trailer was stopped at the Ridgefield Port of Entry after going through the scales at 1,100 pounds overweight.
The driver, Katherine Simms, 50, of Yuba City, CA, was arrested for an outstanding warrant out of Oregon.
Troopers searched Simms' purse and said a baggie of white powder, believed to be methamphetamine, was found.
Troopers evaluated Simms at the scene and determined she was not impaired at the time of her arrest. She was booked in the Clark County Jail.
A search warrant was then obtained for the truck. Troopers said they found two glass smoking devices in the truck's living quarters. A WSP K-9, named Corbin, assisted with the investigation.
Investigators said she was hauling a load of frozen chicken from Livingston, CA to Longview, WA when she was stopped. The truck remained parked at the scene until a licensed driver was found to take over the load.
Charges are pending in this case, according to police.
