Woman caught with prescription drugs
A woman is facing new possession charges after she was caught with a prescription pain pill and objects determined to be used to smoke drugs when authorities were serving her with a felony warrant.
The woman was found hiding in a closet at a residence near Dillon when deputies arrived to serve her with a warrant for possession of a controlled substance, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
Searching the woman’s purse during the arrest, authorities discovered several pieces of aluminum foil, two partially melted plastic pen tubes, two razor blades and two metal screwdrivers with picks, items the deputy determined were “commonly used with smoking drugs,” according to the report.
They also found an Oxycodone pill, which a man at the residence said he had given to the woman because she stated she was in pain, the report stated. The man had a prescription for the drug.
The woman was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and violation of bond conditions.
SCSO: More trouble at deadly Keystone crosswalk
A man was charged with failing to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk after a Summit County sheriff’s deputy saw him speed through an intersection as a group of pedestrians was attempting to cross the street.
The people returned to the curb to avoid being hit by the oncoming vehicle and no one was injured.
A drunk driver hit and killed a pedestrian at the same location earlier this year.
A deputy who was watching the intersection due to the high level of foot traffic in the area at night, pulled the driver over and indicated he showed signs of intoxication, according to a report released by the sheriff’s office.
The driver reportedly told the deputy he had seen the pedestrians but didn’t see the signs marking the crosswalk, the report stated.
The deputy reportedly found a half empty case of beer and an open can of beer in the car.
The driver refused to take a breath or blood alcohol test. He was arrested and in the patrol vehicle reportedly hit his head repeatedly against the window, kicked the inside of the car and spit all over the back seat, the report states.
The driver was booked at the jail for DUI, driving under restraint, failing to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk and open alcoholic beverage container in a motor vehicle.
