A Naples woman was arrested Friday by Collier deputies after they found fentanyl during a traffic stop.

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office said Mary Anderson, 43, is charged with trafficking fentanyl, amphetamine trafficking, three counts of possession of a controlled substance and driving on a suspended license.

The arrest happened after a deputy spotted Anderson driving a white Nissan on Immokalee Road. He stopped her because there was a warrant for her arrest.

A K9 alerted to drugs in the Nissan. Deputies found 40 counterfeit Xanax pills that tested positive for fentanyl.

A passenger in the vehicle, Blayze Nochta, 37, was charged with the possession of drug paraphernalia.
