SPOKANE, Wash. -- A woman who was wanted for escaping community custody and theft was arrested Saturday after being pulled over for an obstructed plate.

Deputies pulled over Sheena Eller, 29, while she was traveling northbound on Havana from 14th in a dark colored SUV. She claimed she had lost her license and when she was asked for her name deputies say she lied.

A deputy checked the information Eller provided and there was no record found. Eller was arrested and she admitted to giving the wrong name and gave them her real name.

Then, authorities searched Eller and found a digital scale covered with a substance the deputy recognized as methamphetamine.

Eller's records showed she had an active Department of Corrections felony warrant for escaping community custody and a misdemeanor warrant for theft. While Eller was being transported to the Spokane County Jail, deputies noticed she was moving around a lot. When they asked her why she was moving around so much she told them her shoulder hurt and she was trying to get comfortable.

At the jail the deputy asked her again about her movements. He asked if she was trying to conceal anything illegal.

Eller was searched again and a deputy found two plastic bags containing a white crystalline substance which was later identified as methamphetamine.

She was book for both the felony and misdemeanor warrants, a misdemeanor charge for providing false statements/information and  possession of a controlled substance.
