Two busted for felony charges after traffic stop

A woman from Livermore and a man from Fremont face multiple felony counts after a Feb. 25 traffic stop near the intersection of Maywood Drive and Springdale Avenue, according to police reports.

Crystal Marie Brush, 29, of Livermore was arrested on several outstanding felony warrants: an Alameda County auto theft warrant, a grand theft warrant from Fremont, another grand theft warrant from Pleasanton and a misdemeanor warrant for possession of a switchblade from Dublin.

Brush was also arrested for felony possession of controlled substances, specifically methamphetamine and two narcotics, hydrocodone and Norco.

Doug Deacon Buffey, 53, of Fremont was originally arrested on a felony probation violation. However, during a search at the Pleasanton Police Department, 2.1 ounces of methamphetamine were discovered in his underwear, according to police reports.

The two were arrested at around 6:03 p.m. Brush is being held at the Santa Rita Jail with multiple bond amounts totaling $135,000. Buffey remains at the jail in lieu of $45,000 bond.
