MADISONVILLE, Ky. (9/28/15) — Police say a Madisonville woman was “tweaking” on meth and fled from them while they were attempting to talk to her about a possible burglary at a nearby residence Friday evening.
The report said when officers arrived, the complainant advised them that two women had run up the hill to the residence at 824 Grapevine Road. As Officer Justin Crump was knocking on the door of the residence and speaking with the homeowner, a woman Crump had seen in the kitchen ran out the back door but was apprehended by Officer Jared Ward.
The report also said that the female suspect was tweaking and admitted to using methamphetamines throughout the day. When Crump asked her if she had drugs in her purse, she reportedly told him she was unsure. A search of the purse revealed a needle loaded with suspected meth, and the woman advised him it was indeed meth, the report said.
MPD charged Andrea K. Conrad, 26, with first-degree possession of a controlled substance – third or greater offense, drug paraphernalia – buy/possess, public intoxication – controlled substance excludes alcohol, second-degree fleeing or evading police (on foot) and on Hopkins County warrants for failure to appear and non-payment of fines.
She is being lodged in the Hopkins County Detention Center.
