CORDES JUNCTION, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in Arizona say they have arrested a 31-year-old woman on suspicion of possessing dangerous drugs after she called to report her suspicion someone had bugged her car.

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday the arrest of Cheyenne Pechacek was made Sunday evening. Responding deputies discovered a warrant for Pechacek's arrest and found a tube attached to her key chain containing what she acknowledged could have been the synthetic opioid fentanyl.

They also found unmarked pills in a small bag, a vial with white powder residue and another bag containing 7 ½ pills scored to look like a prescription drug.

No listening devices were found.

Pechacek was booked into Camp Verde Detention Center.

Information about a possible defense attorney for Pechacek could not be found online.
