Last updated on Thursday, December 1, 2016

(BLOOMINGTON) - Bloomington police arrested two women on drug charges after a traffic stop near Kinser Pike and the Ind. 45/46 Bypass Monday night.

One of the women is also facing charges of trafficking after police say she concealed drugs in a body cavity and they fell on the floor during a search by a jail officer when she was being processed at the Monroe County Jail.

According to Bloomington Police Department Capt. Steve Kellams, an officer pulled over the erratic driver as they were turning onto the Ind. 45/46 Bypass from North Walnut Street at about 11:45 p.m. Monday.

The driver, Amber Templeman-Sparks, told police she was driving without a license and was wanted on a warrant. She told police she didn't know the name of her passenger, who police say was pretending to be asleep.

Police found syringes and more than nine grams of meth when they searched the car.

Police arrested 37-year-old Templeman-Sparks and 37-year-old Terri Daniels and they were taken to jail on charges of possession of meth, possession of a syringe and outstanding warrants.

During the intake procedure, Daniels told jail officers she had no drugs in her possession. But during a body search plastic containers fell on the floor from her body cavity. One container contained a plastic bag with marijuana and the other container held two prescription pills and a white-powdery substance that has been sent to the State Police lab for testing.

Daniels told police she forgot about the concealed drugs.

She is now facing additional charges of trafficking with an inmate, possession of a legend drug and possession of marijuana.

She was booked into the jail on the additional preliminary charges of trafficking with an inmate, possession of a legend drug and possession of marijuana.
