RUTLAND — A routine traffic stop late Monday night led to the arrest of a 29-year-old woman on charges of hindering arrest and possession of cocaine, according to Vermont State Police.

Troopers from the Rutland Barracks conducted the vehicle stop after observing a violation around 11:27 p.m. The driver, identified as Zoey Brown, a transient resident of Vermont, was initially detained for allegedly hindering an arrest related to a separate incident.

While at the scene, officers noticed signs of drug activity and decided to impound Brown’s vehicle pending a search warrant.

A subsequent search of the vehicle and Brown’s person revealed what troopers suspected to be cocaine.

Brown was released with a citation and is scheduled to appear in Rutland Criminal Court to face the charges brought against her.

The Vermont State Police have not released further details on the nature of the traffic violation or the separate incident that led to the hindering arrest charge.
