On November 21, at about 6:30PM, sheriff's deputies stopped a vehicle at the Dallesport Market in Dallesport.

The driver identified as 19-year-old Jilliann Rose Rivera was arrested on driving while license suspended.

While deputies were searching her vehicle, they located 19 individually wrapped baggies of suspected methamphetamine hidden in the dash of the vehicle. A scale was located under a back seat of the vehicle. Three hundred and sixty three dollars was seized from the vehicle, as well.

The sheriff's office is intending to seize the 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix, as well as the money located in the vehicle.

A charge of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine has been sent to the Klickitat County Prosecutor's Office.



Two Yakima men were injured when they were involved in a one-vehicle accident on Nov. 25, 2003, at approximately 5:47 p.m.

The accident occurred on State Route 97 near milepost 30.1. It was snowing and the roads were icy at the time of the accident.

According to the report, Luviano A. Bucio, 25, Yakima, was driving a 1998 Isuzu southbound on SR 97. The vehicle crossed the northbound lanes, striking a tree. It then rolled over, down an embankment, coming to rest approximately 100 feet down.

Bucio and Hilereo T. Pass Eutirrez, 21, also of Yakima, were both transported with injuries to Klickitat Valley Hospital in Goldendale.

Both men were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident.

On Nov. 30, 2003, at 4:30 p.m., troopers responded to a two-car injury collision on SR 14 at the Hood River Bridge, (at about milepost 65 on SR 14).

Investigation revealed that 18-year-old Bingen resident Daniel J. Leininger was turning left from west on SR 14 to south onto the Hood River Bridge in a green 1999 Ford Taurus. The vehicle was struck by 54-year-old resident Victoria A. Brumfield, The Dalles, Ore. who was driving east on SR 14 in a gray 1989 Mercury Cougar.

Brumfield suffered injuries to her ribs and lacerations to her legs and was transported to Hood River Providence Hospital where she still remains in stable condition.

Leininger was treated for minor injuries at the scene by EMR (Emergency Medical Response) and not transported to the hospital.

Trooper Randall D. Cashatt investigated the collision and issued Leininger a ticket for failing to yield.
