A Hope woman was arrested early Wednesday morning on numerous drug charges after officers observed her riding her bicycle with an equipment violation.

At approximately 4:40 a.m., Officer Skylar Berry stopped a female near Pennsylvania Street and 19th Street after he saw her riding a bike without a working front light.

A grinder, three smoking devices, and a clear plastic bag, all of which contained marijuana residue, were located in Hoeltke's bag as well. Officers also discovered a small plastic bag containing methamphetamine, a small plastic bag with marijuana, and three syringes in Hoeltke's backpack.
