After she was found slumped over the steering wheel of a running vehicle early Monday morning, a woman was jailed on a number of drug-related charges, including possession of methamphetamine.
Officer Pam Bell said she was patrolling near Water and Keetoowah at around 2:40 a.m. when she spotted a Toyota Tacoma parked in the alley. Bell said she’d seen the vehicle about an hour before, in the same location, parked with its lights on.
As she approached the driver’s side, Bell noticed the Toyota was running and a woman was slumped over and passed out. Bell said she opened the door to check on the woman and noticed a glass meth pipe on the floor board, next to the driver’s feet.
The woman – later identified as Randi Sanders – awoke and got out of the vehicle, but was unsteady on her feet and had to use the Toyota for support, Bell reported.
Sanders told Bell the pipe did not belong to her, and that a male friend had driven the truck.
According to Bell, Sanders had slurred speech and her lips were covered in a white film; she also smelled of alcohol, the officer reported.
Sanders allegedly confessed to taking a Clonazepam at around 8 p.m. the night before her arrest.
During a search of Sanders’ purse, a clear baggie with a substance that appeared to be meth was found, along with a cut straw and residue, and several pills. She was booked into jail for actual physical control-drugs, possession of controlled dangerous substance-meth, possession of CDS without a valid prescription, and possession of paraphernalia.
