An Elmhurst woman's dead license plate light cost her a trip to the county jail on felony drug charges, police said.

Michelle Pack, 38, of 279 W. Crescent Ave. was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving without a rear registration light following a 12:35 a.m. Friday traffic stop near the intersection of North Avenue and Route 83.

The officer who pulled Pack over reportedly smelled pot coming from the car and was given consent to conduct a search. The officer then found a "small tinfoil packet containing suspected heroin, a single crack cocaine rock and a crack cocaine pipe and a syringe," police said.

There seems to be a decent amount of drug activity as of late. Must be the bad weather.

I agree Faust, and one thing a lot of this cases have in common are for non-working lights. I just hope EPD are giving warnings if no other infractions occur. I would hate to have to pay a ticket for not knowing my license plate light was out. Either way, hopefully the word is out to avoid Elmhurst if you're looking / are breaking the law. Keep up the good work EPD.

I received myself a fresh ticket on Monday morning, 5:15am. Claims I went through the yellow light. It was close, but I was doing my civic duty of keeping an eye on distressed properties and probably got a little too excited as I approached York. Cop was a good guy though, as he recognized I was "all in for Elmhurst".
