Woman arrested while driving man home from prison

2:13 a.m. 1200 block of County Road 302.

Narcotics. A deputy on patrol spotted a car that was weaving in and out of its lane and "jerking in its lane of travel," according to the deputy's report. When the deputy stopped the car and asked the female driver if she was OK, she said she was fine. But her passenger, a man, said that she "was possibly tired as she picked him up from prison near the Florida and Alabama state line."

When the woman provided the deputy with her information, the deputy noticed as the woman leaned forward that there was a "clear plastic baggie containing BBs underneath her buttocks." The bag of BBs contained a "chrystalline residue" that the deputy recognized as meth.

The deputy requested a K-9 unit, and the dog gave probable cause to search the car. A purse in the car also contained a shaker-cup keychain filled with meth. The woman said the bag was hers, but the meth wasn't. She couldn't explain how the meth got in her bag. Deputies arrested her.
