Alleged kidnapper back in custody
March 8, 2017
A Gardnerville woman admitted to violating her bail conditions in Douglas County District Court on Monday by failing a drug test after attempting to alter the results.
Stacy R. Conti-Salway, 35, failed to appear for a March 2 drug test. She was located at her Gardnerville residence and ordered to test.
When she reported, her "movements were suspicious as she was attempting to obscure my view," according to court documents.
A deputy who entered the restroom found Conti-Salway in possession of a fake bladder and an IV bag with a urine-colored substance.
In a subsequent test Conti-Salway tested positive for methamphetamine. She admitted she had used methamphetamine and Xanax the day before.
Conti-Salway is facing multiple felony charges along with Francisco "Frankie" Perez. She was arrested in December and he was arrested in January after the pair allegedly hit another man with a baseball bat and forced him to withdraw money from his bank at gunpoint before letting him go.
