Comments Off on Traffic stop leads to woman’s arrest on meth charge

COLUMBUS, Ind. — A traffic stop resulted in the arrest of an Edinburgh woman accused of having about $1,000 worth of methamphetamine.

April Lynn Jackson, 39, was stopped shortly before midnight Friday at 13th Street and Central Avenue after Columbus Police Sgt. Morgan Horner and Patrolman Toby Combest saw her driving at a high rate of speed on Pleasant Grove, said Lt. Matt Myers, spokesman for the police department.

During the traffic stop, officers saw cold medication tablets illegally used in the production of methamphetamine inside the vehicle, Myers said.

He said Jackson was arrested on a Johnson County warrant, and the officers found methamphetamine, syringes and items used to make the drug.

The meth was packaged in plastic bags, which the officers believe was done to sell the drug, Myers said.

Jackson was booked into the Bartholomew County Jail on preliminary charges of possession of meth, possession of paraphernalia and illegal possession of a syringe.
