When she was pulled over, police said Reek made several “furtive movements” in her car.

Police said a digital scale was visible and there was white crystal residue on the surface area. When asked her name, Reek gave police a false name, according to a report.

Reek was placed in handcuffs, and police conducted a probable cause search and vehicle inventory before it was towed from the scene, the report said.

Reek will have her preliminary hearing Aug. 20 in Middletown Municipal Court.
