SANTA FE (KRQE) – Santa Fe police have arrested a suspected drug dealer they’ve been trying to nab for a while all because she was allegedly driving drunk.

It happened Tuesday when police say Katherine Ramirez was stopped in the middle of Saint Francis unconscious at the wheel.

Dash cam video shows Ramirez could barely walk during a field sobriety test.

Police say they had been looking for Ramirez who is accused of selling drugs in Santa Fe.

Police say they found heroin, cocaine, pills and more than $700 inside her car.

The criminal complaint says Ramirez told police the money was to buy clothes for her kids and to buy more drugs. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
