Three people were arrested on separate drug charges over two days by Norfolk police officers.

Capt. Mike Bauer said an officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle with expired license plates on Tuesday at 8:54 p.m. in the 800 block of Koenigstein Avenue.

The driver, identified as Ariel M. Widhalm, 26, had a suspended license in Nebraska, Bauer said.

Widhalm, homeless, was taken into custody, and a subsequent search of her car turned up a small bag containing methamphetamine.

Additionally, when a passenger, Jake E. Madrigal, 23, exited the vehicle, a broken glass pipe with methamphetamine residue was seen and recovered from his seat.

Both Madrigal, also homeless, and Widhalm were interviewed about methamphetamine use.

Widhalm was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and driving under suspension, and Madrigal was arrested for possession of methamphetamine.

Both were housed in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.

On Wednesday, a Norfolk police officer conducted a traffic stop on a motorcycle speeding in the 100 block of S. Victory Road at 7:47 p.m.

The motorcycle was traveling 71 miles per hour, and the driver was identified as Colby D. Napier, 31, of Norfolk.

A check of Napier’s license showed that he had an active warrant for arrest out of Antelope County and that his driver’s license was suspended.

Napier was taken into custody, and officers recovered two small plastic bags and a plastic straw which all tested positive for methamphetamine.

Napier was arrested for driving under suspension, possession of methamphetamine and for the Antelope County warrant. He was housed at the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.
