(JASONVILLE) - A 30-year-old Linton woman is facing drug charges after she was stopped for not having working tail lights.

Jasonville Police arrested Teleshia Hoesman early Sunday morning on a felony charge of possession of meth and a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

A Jasonville officer stopped Hoesman just before 2 a.m. when he noticed her 1988 Chevrolet truck was traveling south on State Road 59 with a tail light out.

While officers were talking with the male driver, another officer arrived with his K-9 and walked around the vehicle. The dog alerted police to possible drugs inside the truck.

When police asked the male driver if there were drugs in the truck he replied "no" and gave police consent to search the vehicle.

During the search, police found a black and white purse that had been dropped on the ground outside of the passenger door and kicked under the truck.

Hoesman, who was a passenger in the truck, was asked if the purse was hers and though hesitant gave police consent to search the purse which she admitted was hers.

In the purse police found syringes and a "tooter" which is slang for an instrument used to ingest controlled substances. They also found a pen tube containing a white residue that tested positive for meth, a piece of folded aluminum foil containing a clear crystal-like substance, a metal spoon containing meth residue, and a red screw-top container containing a plastic corner baggie with a white crystal-like residue.

During an interview with police, Hoesman told police they two were on their way back from Terre Haute when officers stopped them. They went to Terre Haute to get meth.

When asked where the meth was, Hoseman admitted she had about a half gram of crystal meth in her bra.
