Kelly Jo Keiter, 49, of Holmes Beach, was arrested March 27 in Holmes Beach for violating a court-ordered probation, driving on a suspended license and carrying 23 pills without a prescription.
Holmes Beach police stopped Keiter at 11:52 p.m. in a westbound Nissan in the 700 block of Manatee Avenue. She was traveling 54 mph in a 35-mph zone, according to a police report.
HBPD Officer Alan Bores reported Keiter told him her driverâ€™s license was suspended and he determined she was violating an 11 p.m. probation curfew.
A police report indicates officers searched the vehicle and found a bottle with 10 oxycodone and four alprazolam pills under the passenger seat, four oxycodone pills next to the driverâ€™s seat and an oxycodone in Keiterâ€™s purse.
Keiter was transported to Manatee County jail, where she is being held without bond on the probation violation.
A $34,000 bond was assigned for the drug charges and a $500 bond for the DWSL.
Keiter has a record of theft convictions in 2009, 2014 and 2015. She was sentenced to two years probation which, according to a December 2016 court order, was extended until 2018, for shoplifting.
In October 2016, Keiter was arrested for shoplifting and possessing drugs in Bradenton â€” two open cases, in addition to the recent Holmes Beach arrest.
Her arraignment in the Holmes Beach case is set for 9 a.m. April 18 at the Manatee County Judicial Center, 1051 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton.
