Crystal Stigall

Lawrence County Police arrested 33-year-old Crystal Stigall, of 1909 M St., on charges of possession of a narcotic drug, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The vehicle Stigall was driving was stopped at 8:06 p.m. on Hoosier Avenue near 6th Street after an officer says she failed to signal while making a turn.

“During initial contact with Crystal Stigall she exhibited signs of being very nervous and stated that the car she was driving did not belong to her,” said Major Gregg Taylor. “Officers deployed an LCSD K9 which gave a primary alert to illegal substances inside the vehicle.”

During the vehicle search, officers located a wallet belonging to Stigall which contained several small baggies of a white powdery substance that field-tested positive for Heroin.  Officers also found a red plastic bag containing marijuana.
