Sharon woman arrested on meth charges
On Feb. 6 at 10:24 p.m. Deputy Gary Eddings with the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department was on patrol and drove up on a vehicle in the ditch with the rear wheels off the ground. Eddings came into contact with the driver, 51-year-old Tina Forrester, and asked her what happened. Forrester stated that she went to turn around in a driveway and got stuck.
After running her driver’s license, it was discovered that Forrester’s license was suspended out of Greenfield city court for failure to file insurance. Forrester’s boyfriend then arrived on the scene and stated that he was there to pull the car out.
After the car was pulled out of the ditch, Eddings noticed signs of impairment and asked Forrester if she had used any drugs and she stated that she had smoked meth. Eddings performed a pat down search of Forrester and located a glass meth pipe in her jacket pocket.
Eddings and Deputy Schaeffer then searched the vehicle after she gave consent and located 1.5 grams of crystal meth rocks in her purse.
Forrester was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia meth related, possession of schedule II meth, driving on a suspended license, roadways laned for traffic and due care.
DISCLOSER: Information obtained came from the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department affidavit provided by Deputy Gary Eddings.
