JPD: Pot found in woman's private parts | Crime
A Region 8 woman faces drug charges after police say they found a bag of pot in her private parts.
At 2:45 a.m. Monday, July 2, a Jonesboro police officer stopped a 2006 Chevy Cobalt traveling at a “high rate of speed” on Main Street.
The driver, 39-year-old Kenneth R. Sutton of Jonesboro, told Officer Blake Easley his license was suspended; but, Sutton said he was “only driving because the passenger, Bobbie Sietz, was too intoxicated,” according to the incident report.
Sutton also reportedly told Officer Easley that Sietz “had some syringes” and she was “scared she’d go to jail” if police found them.
When Officer Easley asked Sietz, 24, to step out of the car he said he “noticed that she was tugging at her panties.”
Easley said he patted the Jonesboro woman down but was “unable to locate any weapons or narcotics.”
While Easley was questioning Sietz, a K9 unit reportedly “alerted on the front passenger side door” where Sietz was sitting.
When officers searched the vehicle, according to the incident report, they found a package of syringes and a 10mg Cyclobenzaprine tablet, which is a muscle relaxant.
According to Officer Easley’s report, Sutton asked him if they had “found the weed.” When Easley said no, Sutton reportedly indicated that Sietz had hidden it inside her body.
Sietz was then transported to the Craighead County Detention Center where a booking officer reportedly found a bag containing 22 grams of marijuana hidden in her genitals.
Sietz was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possessing instruments of crime. She was given a surety bond of $1,290.
Sutton was charged with driving on a suspended license and released.
