Medora Woman Arrested For Meth After Pull Over For Headlight

Last updated on Thursday, February 26, 2009

(MEDORA) - Police in Jackson County probably didn’t know that pulling over a woman in Medora for a dead headlight would turn into such an event.

The Seymour Tribune reports a Jackson County deputy noticed a small pickup driving north of Medora with a headlight out, and turned his lights on to make a stop. However, the officer reportedly noticed suspicious behavior from the passenger when following them.

Eventually, the officer would stop the truck, find a light bulb under the seat used for smoking meth, and found 0.5 grams of meth on the passenger, 32-year-old Michelle Root of Medora.

Root was arrested, the man driving the truck was cited and released.
