A Wichita Falls woman is accused of having marijuana stowed in her underwear during a traffic stop Wednesday that led to drug charges against her and a man — who is already on probation for a shoe-related stickup, according to police and court records.
Officers found pot, methamphetamine and Tetrahydrocannabinol during searches, police said.
Sienna Jo Hunsaker, 18, was charged with felony possession of 1 to less than 4 grams of methamphetamine and misdemeanor possession of less than two ounces of pot, according to court records.
If convicted of the felony charge, Hunsaker faces up to 10 years in prison.
Lane Preston Lukash, 19, was charged with possession of 4 to less than 400 grams of THC and possession of 1 to less than 4 grams of meth, both felonies, court documents show.
THC is a compound in marijuana that produces a feeling of being high.
If convicted, Lukash faces up to 20 years in prison on the THC charge and 10 years in prison on the meth charge.
Hunsaker was free Thursday from Wichita County Jail on $5,500 in bonds, online jail records show.
Lukash was free Thursday from Wichita County Jail on $15,000 in bonds, according to online jail records.
He has been serving an eight-year term of probation for aggravated robbery since Sept. 13. Aggravated robbery is punishable by up to life in prison.
Lukash had a business selling shoes, but when he met another kid to buy his shoes on Sept. 17, 2018, an accomplice pulled a gun, according to an affidavit for arrest warrant. Then Lukash and the accomplish took the kid’s shoes and left.
A warrant was issued for Lukash’s arrest May 12 for suspected probation violation. A pre-trial conference on revoking his probation is set for June 26 in 30th District Court.
Sgt. Charlie Eipper, Wichita Falls police public information officer, provided this account for the recent drug charges from probable cause affidavits:
Officers conducted a traffic stop about 9:03 p.m. Wednesday on a black Dodge Charger at Southwest Parkway and Fairway Boulevard.
The car, driven by Lukash, had failed to signal 100 feet before the intersection of Mistletoe Drive and Johnson Road. Hunsaker was the front passenger.
An officer detected the order of marijuana wafting from the Dodge, and she had the occupants get out of the car.
During a search of the car, the officer found what she believed to be pot.
A brown rolling paper with a green leafy substance inside that smelled like marijuana was in the glove compartment directly in front of Hunsaker.
Officers continued to search and discovered several pill capsules with a yellow-brown tinted crystallized substance inside them. The capsules were also in the glove box.
They found several more capsules on the floor next to where Hunsaker was sitting, in between the front passenger door and the front passenger seat.
An officer questioned the occupants of the vehicle, and other officers observed and asked a few questions.
But none of the occupants admitted to ownership of the narcotics in the car.
Hunsaker admitted she had pot stashed in her underwear, and an officer found a small baggie of a green leafy substance hidden there.
The leafy substance tested positive for marijuana using a test kit. The crystallized substance in the capsules tested positive for meth.
Searching the vehicle also turned up four THC cartridges still in the box, each labeled as weighing 1 gram, under the driver’s seat. The cartridges tested positive for THC.
