Columbus police say that they stopped her vehicle at about 3:15 Thursday afternoon in the 600 block of California Street after noticing it had a false registration.

Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department police dog Diesel alerted to the smell of drugs in the vehicle and a search found syringes and other drug paraphernalia. Comstock was arrested and during a search, officers found the drugs.
