COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A routine traffic stop led to a drug arrest Sunday afternoon, but not before the driver tried to make a run for it.

Police stopped 19-year-old Katlyn Rivers Sunday around 6 p.m. at Farr Road and Ford Drive because the passenger didn't have on a seatbelt.

Rivers took off running, but was later caught in the area and arrested.

A search of the vehicle turned up a small bag of suspected crack cocaine in the center console. She was driving a 1992 Black Buick Regal.
