Ranchos woman faces trafficking charge


A Gardnerville Ranchos woman is facing a charge of drug trafficking in Douglas County District Court on Tuesday after she waived her preliminary hearing.

Rebecca Dianne Frawley, 36, is accused of having 100-400 grams of fentanyl when she was arrested Aug. 26.

According to court documents, she was northbound in the fast lane of Highway 395 driving 57 mph, which prompted a traffic stop.

During the stop, K-9 Bane took a whiff of the Mercedes Frawley was driving, allegedly detecting the drugs.

Frawley was taken into custody and deputies found bags containing blue pills with M30 stamped on them.

• A nationwide no-bail warrant was issued Monday for the arrest of a woman who was arrested in February in connection with a stolen vehicle.

Yvette Rene Bryan, 30, was ordered out of Western Nevada Regional Drug Court and was scheduled to appear in Douglas County District Court on Monday.

Bryan admitted to possession of methamphetamine in August and was given a deferred sentence so she could attend drug court.

She was terminated from the program on Nov. 4. Her attorney said she hasn’t heard from Bryan.

• A Carson City man admitted to possession of methamphetamine and heroin on Monday.

James Albert Hernandez, 34, faces 1-4-year prison terms and up to $10,000 in fines at his sentencing Jan. 10.

Hernandez is also serving a six-month sentence from Tahoe Township Justice Court.

He asked to be released on his own recognizance on the drug felonies so he could apply for a treatment program.

He would get credit for the time he spent in treatment.

“He’s doing six months so he will either be in custody or treatment,” attorney Kris Brown said.
