ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. The Arkansas City Police Department arrested an El Dorado woman Monday on suspicion of drug charges and theft in connection with an incident last month.

Reyna Maria Lopez, 33, was arrested on suspicion of one felony count of possession of methamphetamine and two felony counts of counterfeiting currency (each count is for an amount less than $1,000), as well as one misdemeanor count each of possession of drug paraphernalia and theft.

She was transported to and booked into the Cowley County Jail in Winfield in lieu of $9,500 bond through Cowley County District Court in Arkansas City.

Lopez remained in custody at the time of this release.

Police took a report Dec. 28, 2019, regarding a theft by shoplifting that had occurred earlier that day at the Walmart Supercenter, located at 2701 N. Summit St.

Through an anonymous tip via social media, Lopez was identified as a possible suspect in the case.

Officers on Monday located Lopez at a residence in the 200 block of East Birch Avenue after locating a vehicle belonging to her in that neighborhood.

The vehicle, a gold 2000 Dodge Stratus, contained drug paraphernalia within plain sight of officers.

After they gained consent to search the vehicle, police also located counterfeit money inside of it.

A search warrant was obtained for the vehicle and executed later that day. Lopez was taken into custody without incident.

A defendant’s guilt or innocence is to be determined by a court of law.
