A traffic stop resulted in a West Las Vegas Schools employee being arrested on charges of possessing methamphetamine and paraphernalia.

Orlando L. Lefebre, 40, of Las Vegas, was arrested Feb. 26 following a traffic stop on Seventh Street in Las Vegas. Lefebre is the program specialist for WLV’s Consolidated Federal Programs, according to the district’s website. Superintendent Chris Gutierrez did not respond to requests for comment about Lefebre’s employment status with the district.

Lefebre was stopped by a New Mexico State Police officer around 8 a.m. Feb. 26. The officer’s radar indicated Lefebre was driving 56 mph along a stretch of road zoned for 40 mph, according to a criminal complaint filed in San Miguel Magistrate Court.

During the traffic stop, Lefebre couldn’t locate his driver’s license or proof of insurance, according to the complaint. While he searched for the documents, the officer noticed a “small square piece” of tinfoil sticking out of Lefebre’s bag. Lefebre told the officer it was foil from a tortilla.
