Woman tells deputy she sold drugs to 'make a little money'

4:00 p.m. First block of Blyth Court

Possession of a weapon by a felon or delinquent, possession of cocaine and marijuana. A deputy and a probation officer went to conduct a probation check at a 33-year-old woman's home. 

They quickly found 80 bags of THC gummies, 20 grams of cocaine, 228 grams of marijuana, ammunition, a bag of narcotics, and scales and other drug paraphernalia. 

The deputy asked the woman about all the illegal goods in her room.

She admitted that it was hers, then said that she did have a medical marijuana card, but preferred to buy off the street because it was cheaper and she could "make a little money off of it."

The deputy arrested her.
