A 50-year-old Ocala woman allegedly left a small bag of drugs inside a deputy’s patrol car after she was arrested on an active warrant.
On Thursday, a Marion County Sheriff’s Office deputy observed Andrea Angelica Williams outside of a room at Sun Days Motel located at 3351 S Pine Avenue in Ocala.
According to the MCSO report, the deputy was aware that Williams had an active warrant. The deputy approached Williams and arrested her.
When the deputy picked up Williams’ purse which was nearby, she told the deputy, “There are two stems in there.” Inside the purse, the deputy located two glass pipes and a metal rod.
Williams was arrested and transported to Marion County Jail. The deputy returned to the patrol car, searched the back seat, and observed a small blue bag filled with a crystal-like substance that was near the base of the seat belt where Williams had been sitting.
The MCSO report indicated that Williams was the last person to use the patrol car’s back seat prior to the discovery of the blue bag.
A field-test later confirmed the presence of methamphetamine inside the blue bag and on the pipe that was found in Williams’ purse.
The deputy re-entered the jail and interviewed Williams. She claimed that the bag did not belong to her.
The deputy told her that the bag and pipe had tested positive for the presence of methamphetamine, and she responded by saying, “No, it’s crack. I smoke crack in the pipe, not meth.”
Williams is currently being held at the jail on $3,000 bond and she is facing a felony charge for possession of a controlled substance along with a misdemeanor charge for possession of drug paraphernalia.
A court date has not been scheduled yet, according to jail records.
