Woman had drugs during booking

Thursday, December 08, 2011

Police say they plan to charge a woman who had drugs and paraphernalia in her purse - when she voluntarily surrendered to be booked on unrelated assault charges.

Uniontown police aren't yet releasing the name of the woman because the charges are pending.

Police tell the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review the woman arrived to be fingerprinted about 9 p.m. Monday then asked an officer if she could use her cell phone to call for a ride home. That's when an officer who looked through her purse for the phone found a plastic straw with white suspected drug residue on it and some narcotics tablets.

The woman told police she had a prescription for the medications, but police say they're waiting for her to prove that before deciding what charges to file.
