Jameelia Grimes

Police arrested 20-year-old Jameelia Grimes, of 1122 Yockey Rd., on charges of possession of meth, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and driving while her driver’s license was suspended.

According to a probable cause affidavit, on April 28, a Bedford Police officer was on routine patrol when he noticed a driver in a silver Lincoln not use their turn signal while making a turn.

The officer ran the license plate and discovered the driver Jameelia Grimes had a suspended driver’s license.

The officer stopped the vehicle at 28th Street and Mitchell Road.

The officer reported Grimes seemed nervous and was visibly shaking. She told the officer she has an appointment with Lawrence County Prosecutor Sam Arp about her suspended driving status.

When the officer told Grimes he was going to contact Prosector Arp, Grimes changed her story and said she didn’t have an appointment but was told to go to the prosecutor’s office for help with her license.

The officer then asked for consent to search the vehicle and she denied that request telling the officer she was told not to let anyone search the vehicle.

The officer then told Grimes he was going to tow the vehicle and would be conducting an inventory on the vehicle.

Grimes then told the officer a friend had left “some stuff” in the vehicle.

She told the officer they would find meth in the center console of the vehicle.

Officers also found two glass smoking pipes with meth residue and located a burnt marijuana substance in Grimes’ purse.

Police seized 1.09 grams of meth during their investigation.
