BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A local woman is in custody after deputies say meth was found in her car.
On Feb. 4, investigators with Bay County Sheriff’s Office say they made a traffic stop on Highway 79, and made contact with the driver, 36-year-old Jessica Heath.
During the stop, deputies say they brought out narcotics detection K-9 Fila to determine if an odor of narcotics was coming from the car. The canine allegedly rendered a positive alert to the presence of drugs, and officials began to search the car.
After a search, BSCO deputies claim nearly a half-pound of meth was found in a large Ziploc bag, as well as THC resin, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.
Health was arrested on charges of trafficking in meth, importation of a controlled substance, possession of THC resin, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and driving with a suspended license.
