Marijuana stash had driver's name on it, Pasco deputies say

HOLIDAY — Deputies suspected the driver was intoxicated when they saw her blow through a stop sign and drive south in the northbound lanes of U.S. 19.

They pulled over Rebekah Michal Tracht-Kader, 21, about 2 a.m. Saturday near Flora Avenue. She had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and smelled of alcohol and marijuana, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report.

Upon searching the car, deputies found a green plastic box which had "Rebekah's pot" written on it, the report said.

Tracht-Kader took two Breathalyzer tests showing her blood-alcohol content was 0.184 and 0.189, more than twice the level at which Florida law presumes impairment.

Tracht-Kader, of 7735 Starfire Way in New Port Richey, was arrested on charges of DUI and possession of marijuana. She was released on bail later Saturday morning.
