A woman driving a stolen car had two dogs as her passengers, one with infected cuts and a bow glued to its head, according to court records.

Sheila M. Cavitt-Olguin, 51, of Las Vegas was arrested Dec. 4 following a traffic stop on Seventh Street.

According to a statement of probable cause filed in San Miguel Magistrate Court, a San Miguel County Sheriff’s deputy pulled over the 1997 Honda Accord Cavitt-Olguin was driving because the car did not have a visible license plate. As the deputy approached the car, she was able to locate a license plate in the rear window, but it was difficult to read because the window was tinted.
