Brittany Brousseau, a cousin of missing Evansdale girls Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins, was arrested Monday on drug charges.

According to court documents, 21-year-old Brousseau was driving on West 5th Street in Waterloo around 7:34 a.m. Monday and passed a police officer.  The officer says that when he ran the license plate, it came back to an owner without a driver's license.

The officer says that when he pulled Brousseau over, she told him that she didn't have a license.  The officer says that Brousseau also declined to let him search the vehicle, but a K-9 indicated the possibility of drugs being in the van.

During a search of the van, the officer says he found a pill bottle containing .5 mg and 2 mg of Alprazolam, a drug used to treat anxiety and panic disorders.

According to the officer, Brousseau knew of the drugs but did not want to talk about them.

Brousseau was arrested and charged with two counts of unlawful possession of prescription drugs.  She was released on $2,000 bond.  Her initial appearance is scheduled for Aug. 16.
