A Talladega woman was arrested on felony drug charges following a traffic stop over the weekend, according to Police Chief Jason Busby.

Malinda Taylor, 61, had what appeared to be crack cocaine and a pipe in the car with her. She was charged with one count each of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, and the case was turned over to the Talladega County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force.

Task Force Commander Jason Murray said Taylor had her initial court appearance before District Judge Jeb Fannin, who set bond at $5,000.

Possession of a controlled substance is a Class C felony in Alabama, punishable upon conviction by one year and one day to 10 years in prison.

Possession of drug paraphernalia is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 12 months in jail.
