Former Nevada beauty queen busted for drugs


Former Miss Nevada Katie Rees was arrested for possessing drugs Tuesday evening after the car she was a passenger in was pulled over for a traffic stop.

Rees was a passenger in her boyfriend Kevin Sims’ car. She was Miss Nevada in 2007 but was stripped of her crown when sexually explicit pictures of her surfaced. 

According to the arrest report, Metro Police pulled over Sims after he failed to use his turn signal several times. Sims had outstanding warrants for his arrest.

During the traffic stop, police said they could smell marijuana and conducted a search finding two bags that belonged to Rees.

Rees admitted she had smoke methamphetamine earlier, the report said. She also acknowledged that some of the items in the bags belonged to her.

According to the arrest report, police found narcotics paraphernalia including rolling papers and pipes, a canister containing marijuana, a small baggie of methamphetamine, a Xanaz pill and a Oxycotin pill.

Police also searched other bags belonging to Sims and found methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana, the report said.

At the time of his arrest, Sims told police, “Nothing in that car is hers.”

Rees has been arrested in the past for drug possession.
