Comments Off on Amber Rae McKinley, 31, arrested when found with Methamphetamine and drugs in pants and rectum in Coweta County

A woman was arrested Saturday after authorities found an unloaded handgun and a number of baggies containing marijuana and methamphetamine in her pants.

About 4:15 p.m., Deputy Donald Patterson stopped and pulled over a vehicle for driving without a tag on Herring Road, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office. Patterson then met with the driver, Terry Ray Smith, 36, and found Smith was driving on a suspended license and had a warrant for a violation of probation, so he was taken into custody.

Patterson then spoke to the passenger, Amber Rae McKinley, 31, and found she was acting suspiciously, her hands were shaking and she kept holding the waistband of her pants, Yarbrough said. Because of this, Patterson asked McKinley to step out of the vehicle, and when she did, he caught a strong odor of marijuana. Patterson also noticed what looked like a plastic bag hanging out of her waistband.

According to Yarbrough, Patterson requested a female officer to assist in searching McKinley, and a female officer with the Newnan Police Department arrived on scene, Yarbrough said. While being searched, though, McKinley continued to resist officers, so they placed her in both handcuffs and legcuffs.

Once they were able to search her, they found a number of plastic baggies containing marijuana, marijuana cigarettes, several grams of methamphetamine and a glass pipe in her pants. They also found an unloaded 25 caliber semi-automatic handgun wrapped in an orange cloth, and ammunition for the gun was found in the vehicle.

Because of the multiple separate baggies, McKinley was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, and she was transported to the Coweta County Jail.

According to Yarbrough, once at the jail, deputies further searched McKinley, and found McKinley was hiding another small container, which contained more suspected marijuana and methamphetamine, in her rectum.
