A 38 year-old Carson City woman was arrested Thursday night at 7:26 p.m. in the area of Old Hot Springs Road and Roop Street on multiple felony drug offenses, a Carson City Sheriff’s deputy said.
Jennila McDaniel was taken into custody for felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, felony trafficking schedule, and possession of prescription drugs without a prescription after a sheriff’s deputy made a traffic stop on her vehicle, the arrest report said.
Upon making contact with McDaniel, the deputy noted the odor of marijuana emanating from her vehicle and observed her to be visibly shaking, the report said. Her eyes were also observed to be red.
The suspect denied any marijuana in the vehicle. A K-9 unit was called to the sniff to perform an exterior sniff, which showed a positive alert, the report said.
A full search of the vehicle was then performed and a small bag containing a green leafy substance was discovered inside McDaniel’s purse suspected to be marijuana, the report said.
Several pills, a bundle of small baggies, and a measuring teaspoon with white residue on it were also found inside the purse.
Another bag containing suspected methamphetamine was also found inside the vehicle, the report said.
The white residue was field tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine, the report said.
Pills found in McDaniel’s purse were identified to be controlled prescription drugs, the report said.
At that point, McDaniel was handcuffed and transported to the Carson City Jail for booking. Bail: $20,000.
