An Athens woman was arrested at a local motel Wednesday after officers discovered marijuana in her room and three bags of methamphetamine in her brassiere.
Shelia Ann Ayala, 38, of 307 Vine St., was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance and attempting to distribute a controlled substance.
Athens Police Capt. Anthony Pressnell said the department received a complaint of drug activity at the Bomar Inn on U.S. 31 Wednesday night. When officers arrived, they made contact with Ayala, according to Pressnell.
She gave consent for officers to search her motel room where they discovered marijuana, Pressnell said. A female officer also searched Ayala and found three small bags of meth in her bra.
She was booked at the Athens Police Department and transferred to the Limestone County Jail with $12,000 bail on Wednesday night. Jail records show she remained in custody as of Thursday night because of bond revocation for two previous drug possession charges. –
