Woman accused of hiding meth in patrol car | Crime
A woman faces multiple charges after Jonesboro police say she hid meth in a patrol car.
During a traffic stop early Monday morning, police say 37-year-old Holly Kirksey Parker of El Dorado admitted she was wanted on warrants.
When the officer searched the car, he reportedly found a used syringe “in between the console and passenger side seat” where Parker was sitting.
The officer arrested Parker and placed her in his patrol car, with her hands cuffed behind her back. According to the officer’s report, Parker “acted very nervous” and managed to slip the handcuffs to the front of her body.
While transporting Parker to the Craighead County Detention Center, the officer said she was “nervous and antsy” and looked as if she was trying to free her hands.
An intake officer reportedly searched Parker at the jail but did not find any drugs or weapons on her person.
The officer then searched his vehicle. When he pulled out the back cushion he reportedly found a black nylon zip bag containing $19 in cash and a pink, heart-shaped tin can containing two separate baggies of suspected methamphetamine.
Parker was charged with possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), possession of drug paraphernalia, probation violation, tampering with physical evidence and a COC/non-payment of fine warrant.
