Ocala woman arrested on warrant allegedly left bag of drugs in patrol car
A 50-year-old Ocala woman allegedly left a small bag of drugs in a deputy’s patrol car after being arrested on an active warrant.
On Thursday, a deputy from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office observed Andrea Angelica Williams outside a room at the Sun Days Motel located at 3351 S Pine Avenue in Ocala.
According to the MCSO report, the deputy knew Williams had an active warrant. The deputy approached Williams and arrested her.
When the deputy picked up Williams’ purse from nearby, she said to the deputy, “There are two rods in there.” Inside the purse, the deputy spotted 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 crystalline substance that was near the base of the seat belt where Williams was seated.
The MCSO report said Williams was the last person to use the back seat of the patrol car before the blue bag was discovered.
A field test later confirmed the presence of methamphetamine inside the blue bag and on the pipe found in Williams’ purse.
The deputy entered the jail and questioned Williams. She claimed the bag did not belong to her.
The deputy told her that the bag and the 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 in jail on $3,000 bond and she faces a felony charge for possession of a controlled substance as well as a misdemeanor charge for possession of drug paraphernalia.
A court date has not yet been set, according to prison records.
