Whitman County

COLFAX - At around 10:30 P.M. on Wednesday, February 12, Whitman County deputies seized several grams of packaged methamphetamine, paraphernalia and a small quantity of cash after a late night traffic stop in Colfax. Deputies originally stopped the driver of the vehicle, 37-year-old Mandy Anderson of Kennewick, WA, for an equipment violation.

While speaking with Anderson, Deputy Langerveld observed several indicators she was possibly under the influence of methamphetamine. After speaking with Anderson and then later her passenger, 58-year-old Robin Neuhart, also of Kennewick, it was determined both had used methamphetamine earlier that evening.

Deputies obtained consent from both parties to search the vehicle and the items in the car, at which time they discovered packaged methamphetamine, scales, cash and other paraphernalia commonly used to smoke methamphetamine. Anderson later admitted to deputies that she and Neuhart were traveling back to the Tri-Cities area after selling a small quantity of methamphetamine in the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley.

Anderson and Neuhart were each booked into the Whitman County Jail on charges of Possession of Methamphetamine with Intent to Deliver. Both are set to have initial appearances Thursday afternoon in Whitman County Superior Court.
