Comments Off on Brown County Deputy Terry Sliter: Jessica McPherron, 23, had 15 grams of Methamphetamine in her underclothing

A 23-year-old Brownwood woman remained jailed Monday in lieu of bonds totaling $106,500 after she was arrested Friday — initially, on an allegation for having a scale with methamphetamine residue.

The charge was upgraded when Jessica McPherron told deputy Terry Sliter that she had methamphetamine in her underclothing, Sliter’s report states. A jailer allowed McPherron to remove two small baggies from her underclothes that allegedly contained 15 grams of methamphetamine.

The traffic stop that led to McPherron’s arrest was one of numerous incidents involving drugs, assaults and other offenses reported by law enforcement officers Monday.

McPherron was arrested after narcotics investigator Carlyle Gover informed Sliter that a vehicle with narcotics would be entering Brown County, Sliter’s report state. According to the report:

Sliter located the vehicle traveling at 58 mph in a 55-mph zone in Early, and Sliter made a traffic stop.

McPherron consented to a search of her vehicle, and Sliter found a scale with methamphetamine residue. Sliter initially arrested McPherron on a charge of possession of a controlled substance.

After McPherron allegedly removed 15 grams of methamphetamine from her underclothing at the jail, Sliter changed the charge to manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance. McPherron was also booked on bond withdrawal warrants for manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance, evidence tamping and possession of marijuana, jail records state.
