A report of a reckless driver on U.S. 1 yesterday in Stafford County resulted in both the driver and passenger of the vehicle being arrested.

On July 1st at 12:19 p.m. Deputy B.W. Gildea responded to a report of a reckless driver on U.S. 1 near M & M Auto Parts. He located the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop in the Stafford County Courthouse Complex parking lot. The driver was identified as Eva Garnett, 53, of Bumpass. She was found to not have a valid driver’s license, but did have a suspected controlled substance in her purse.

The passenger was unable to remember his name, but was eventually identified as William Denekas, 59, of Spotsylvania. He was found to have an active warrant in Spotsylvania.

Garnett was charged with no operator’s license and possession of a controlled substance. She was held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail on a $1,000 bond. Denekas was served the outstanding warrant and released on an unsecured bond.
