Webb told police she had not used meth in more than a week.

Also found in the vehicle was a backpack that had a small Altoids can in it with three small baggies and a cut clear plastic straw containing white residue and white residue on the bottom of the can. All tested positive for meth.

Webb told officers she was very sorry and wants help in getting off drugs. She was given information about Centerstone.

Webb then contacted her boyfriend and he came to pick up the vehicle and Webb was released.

Webb’s information was forwarded to the Lawrence County Prosecutor’s Office and a warrant was issued for Webb’s arrest.
