The discovery of a purple vape pen loaded with THC oil led to a woman’s arrest in Wildwood.

Kimberly Marie Howard, 41, of Umatilla, was driving a gray 2011 Chevrolet Impala at about 6 a.m. Friday when a deputy ran the vehicle’s license plate and found that the registered owner had a suspended license, according to an arrest report from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office.

During a traffic stop on State Road 44, the deputy confirmed that Howard’s license had been suspended as of March 4. During a search, the vape pen was found in the pocket of Howard’s jeans.
