Arnold Police arrested a 36-year-old Bonne Terre woman for alleged possession of methamphetamine and marijuana after police broke up an altercation between her and a former boyfriend. The arrest occurred just before midnight July 29 at the CC Dillon Co. gas station, 1342 Lonedell Road, in Arnold, police reported.
A 31-year-old Bonne Terre man told police he had agreed to allow the woman to go through his 2000 Chevrolet Blazer, which was parked at the gas station, and collect her belongings, so he left the Blazer unlocked and left for a while. When he returned, however, the woman was still in the SUV, and the two began to argue, the report said.
The woman eventually got out of the vehicle, and he got in and attempted to drive away. However, the woman allegedly jumped on the hood of the SUV and then got off and grabbed the side of the Blazer before the police arrived. The woman said the man allegedly dragged her while she held onto the vehicle, according to the report.
At first, the woman allegedly provided a false name to the police, but when her identity was discovered, the officer found out she was wanted on warrants in Festus Police for resisting arrest, in St. Louis County for speeding and in Ste. Genevieve County for driving with a revoked license, the report said.
The woman allegedly resisted being handcuffed but eventually was restrained. The officer searched her purse and allegedly found small plastic baggies filled with a white crystal substance, a bag with a green-leafy substance inside, two glass pipes with burn residue and three straws consistent with drug paraphernalia, according to the report.
She was taken to the Police Station, where she was booked and then released to Rock Township Ambulance because of a medical condition. Depending on the drug analysis, Arnold Police will seek charges against the woman through the Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for possession of meth, marijuana and drug paraphernalia and providing false identification, Lt. Tom Leassner said.
