A woman received a few extra charges Tuesday after Coweta County authorities arrested her for violating her parole and found she was carrying a variety of narcotics in a body cavity.
About 7 p.m., Coweta County authorities went to America’s Best Family Inn to find a man who had an outstanding warrant for violation of parole, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office. Although authorities didn’t find the man at the hotel, they did find his girlfriend, Kathryn Michelle Lunsford, 32, who also had an outstanding warrant for violation of parole and had rented a room under the name of Shelley Byrom.
Authorities met with Lunsford, and took her into custody, Yarbrough said, and because her parole was related to a drug case, they asked her if she had any narcotics in her possession or in the room.
Lunsford said she did, and she had some on the bed and hidden on her person. According to Yarbrough, authorities waited for a female deputy to arrive, who found five individual baggies that contained suspected methamphetamine and oxycodone and xanax pills inside a body cavity. Investigators also found a few needles filled with suspected methamphetamine lying on the bed, and more than 50 small plastic baggies, commonly used for distributing narcotics, in the room.
Because of this, Lunsford was charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of oxycodone with intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and violation of parole, and she was transported to the Coweta County Jail.
