A Salem woman is in custody after Montgomery County police conducted a traffic stop on Tuesday and discovered items used to manufacture methamphetamine.
According to Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Brian Wright, deputies conducted a traffic stop on a 2007 Volkswagen Passat that was operated by Georganna Riganti, 26, from Salem.
The vehicle was reported to be involved in a hit-and-run in Montgomery County.
Riganti was arrested and charged with driving under the influence. Deputies also took as evidence several items that could be used to manufacture meth, according to Wright.
