Police find meth, loaded syringe in Longview woman's car during traffic stop

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW (KYTX) - A 55-year-old Longview woman is in the Gregg County Jail a third time in two months - and twice in a week - after police found methamphetamine and a syringe in her car during a traffic stop Tuesday afternoon.
Cynthia Beth Brantley is in jail on $50,000 bond, charged with second-degree felony possession of a controlled substance. According to Longview police, she was driving a 1998 Pontiac Grand Am when she was stopped in front of the old Movies 9 theater on Texas 31 West at 3:45 Tuesday by an officer who had "prior knowledge the driver of the vehicle, Cynthia Brantley, had a currently suspended driver's license."
While Brantley was looking for her insurance card, the officer noticed a loaded syringe in her glove box. Brantley said it was insulin, but the officer used a field test kit and determined the liquid inside the syringe was methamphetamine. According to a probable cause affidavit, the officer searched Brantley's car and found 7.6 grams of meth in a black coin purse.
Brantley had bonded out of jail one week ago on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, and driving with an invalid license.
