When officers arrived they found 29-year-old Amanda Anderson slumped over in the driver’s seat. 

An officer was able to awake Anderson by knocking on the widow.

Anderson told police she was on her way to work at Stone City Products and was to be at work at 6 a.m. however the officer noted in his report it was 6:20 a.m. 

Anderson told police she stopped at the station to purchase gas, then she changed her story and said she had purchased it in Brownstown on her way to work. She then stated she was “just killing time” and parked at the gas pumps because “it was just easier to get out of the lot that way”.  

Officers found a glass smoking device with burnt marijuana inside after Anderson consented to a vehicle search.

Officers found two plastic baggies and a folded-up dollar bill containing crystal meth in her wallet.. Also in Anderson’s wallet were two small glass tubes containing crystal meth.

Inside a cooler, officers found a small zipped-up pouch that had a combination lock on it.  Anderson opened the pouch and officers found a plastic bag containing marijuana.

Anderson admitted to the officers she was addicted to meth. She was transported to the Lawrence County Jail on charges of possession of meth and marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
