A Jefferson woman and three people from Texas face a total of 10 drug charges after police found methamphetamine, LSD, marijuana and other drugs in their vehicle.
Details of how the case originated were not announced, but the arrest report indicated that the search of the “suspicious vehicle” took place at the Commerce Police Department.
Those arrested include:
•Amy Michelle Duncan, 29, 2998 County Road 1764, Jefferson, possession of LSD, possession of methamphetamine, possession of Schedule 2, Schedule 3 and Schedule 4 narcotics and a warrant from Louisiana for motor vehicle theft
•Christopher Brian Derr, 24, 5739 FM 3158, Dale, Texas, possession of LSD, possession of methamphetamine and possession of a Schedule 3 narcotic
•Joann Yvonne Leek, 37, 504 West Lanark, Queen City, Texas, possession of a Schedule 3 narcotic and a Texas warrant for burglary
•Clayton Tyrel Eaves, 28, 2698 County Road 3214, Atlanta, Texas, possession of a Schedule 3 narcotic.
During a search of the suspects’ vehicle, officers allegedly located two syringes in the center console, found a container of crystal methamphetamine in Duncan’s purse, which she said belonged to her ex-husband, and in a “Goody Powder” container found a “Smarties” wrapper containing three pieces of paper Duncan allegedly advised were laced with LSD.
In the passenger-side front door, police found a silver cigarette container with a Coke can cut in half containing residue of methamphetamine, which was where Derr was sitting. Officers also found another quantity of methamphetamine and another “Smarties” wrapper laced with LSD, according to the report. They also found, on the back seat floor, a single pill believed to be Tylenol III, to which Leek admitted ownership.
Meanwhile, dispatch informed officers of the warrants for Duncan and Leek and said that both states want to extradite the suspects.
The report noted that Jackson County Jail personnel searching Duncan turned up four Xanax, five oxycontin and one suspected hydrocodone pill, adding to the charges against her.
