Daniella Deidra Canava, 38, is charged with possession of a controlled substance over 4 grams and under 200 grams and tampering with evidence with intent to impair. Her bonds total $40,000.
According to the arrest affidavit, an officer with the Wichita Falls Police Department pulled a vehicle over for rolling through a stop sign off Wolcott Lane onto Iowa Park Road around 2:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 7.
The affidavit said officers found multiple other law violations on the vehicle, so they pulled the car over on Central Freeway.

The officer asked Canava for consent to search the vehicle since it was registered to her.
The affidavit said Canava was aggravated officers asked, but she did grant consent for the vehicle to be searched.
The officer found a green ziplock bag with a large crystal-like shard inside of it in the backseat of the car that later tested positive for methamphetamine.

The affidavit said the bag weighed 8.14 grams.
