A 19-year-old Arnold woman allegedly was found with heroin and methamphetamine when she and a 41-year-old Arnold woman were arrested on outstanding warrants in the McDonald’s parking lot, 130 Arnold Crossroads Center. The women were arrested around 2:40 p.m. Dec. 26, Arnold Police reported.
Police were called to the restaurant after someone spotted the women, each one in a different car, acting suspiciously in the parking lot. When officers arrived, the 19-year-old was in a Chrysler 300 and the 41-year-old was in a Toyota Corolla, and police discovered they both were wanted on warrants, the report said.
The 19-year-old was wanted on a warrant from the Arnold Municipal Court for following too close to another vehicle, and the 41-year-old was wanted on warrants from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and the Byrnes Mill Police Department. When police searched the cars, they allegedly found substances believed to be heroin and meth in the Chrysler, according to the report.
Both women were arrested and taken to the Arnold Police Station, where they were held for the other law enforcement agencies. Depending on the drug analysis, Arnold Police will seek charges against the 19-year-old through the Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for possession of controlled substances, Lt. Clinton Wooldridge said.
