Fort Collins Police Services (FCPS) recovered methamphetamine and fentanyl during an arrest last month.

According to a Facebook post from FCPS, the incident began on April 26, when a local business in the 400 block of South College Ave. called police to report a theft.

Upon a rival, the business staff told officers that a female suspect "had concealed clothes and then left in a vehicle."

FCPS reports that an officer located the vehicle, identified as a truck, and attempted to conduct a traffic stop; however, the suspect fled.

Police later found the vehicle unoccupied in an apartment complex parking lot and spotted the female suspect. She unsuccessfully tried to flee on foot before officers took her into custody.

FCPS identified the suspect as Patricia Crockett and said officers discovered 4.7 grams of methamphetamine and 3.9 grams of fentanyl on her person.
