Oak Grove woman caught with fentanyl on a lottery ticket

35-year-old Marisa Oropeza was charged with unlawful drug paraphernalia, contraband in a penal institution, and simple possession of fentanyl after being charged during a traffic stop. Powdered opioids were found on Oropeza’s person in the form of a lottery ticket while in Montgomery County Jail.

On May 23rd, Officer Hickmon noticed a red Honda turning off of Power St onto Providence Blvd. The Honda failed to complete the turn onto Providence, initiating a traffic stop from Hickmon on 108 Adkins St. Hickmon then met the two individuals inside the vehicle, driver Danny Martin and passenger Marisa Oropeza.

Martin denied consent and a K9 public odor sniff was conducted around the car. The K9 was alerted during the public odor sniff, triggering a probable cause search on the Honda. According to the affidavit, Oropeza’s purse was revealed to contain multiple pieces of aluminum foil with a burnt residue and several half-straws containing residue.

Oropeza was arrested for an active warrant. Later, jail deputies discovered a lottery ticket on Oropeza’s person, holding a pink powder. A field test confirmed the powder to be fentanyl.

Marisa Oropeza was arrested and charged with simple possession, contraband in a penal institution, and unlawful drug paraphernalia. Her bond was set at $30,000.
