Eagle, Idaho had a little excitement over the weekend with 35-year-old Stephanie Prieto on the loose.

 

A routine traffic stop on State Street about 9 o'clock Sunday night led to some new information in some very serious crimes that went down here in the Treasure Valley recently.

 

Originally Prieto was pulled over because her brights were on and she failed to dim them when passing motorists needed her to.  When approached, the officer smelled marijuana and noticed several body and trim panels were loose in the car.

 

A K9 drug dog was called in and of course found more than 20 grams of meth along with other drug paraphernalia.

 

Police have now uncovered that Prieto was involved in a case where a Nampa Officer was fired on last month.  Her court date is this Monday.
