Most of us have learned how to “Just Say No,” but for one Texas woman, the temptation to use and traffick drugs was irresistible. 37-year old Jarrell, TX resident Cassandra Christy was taken to the Williamson County Jail, where staff discovered 32 grams of methamphetamine in the woman’s possession.
Routine traffic stop
Initially, Christy was arrested in Georgetown during a routine traffic stop. The arresting officer saw Christy driving erratically and pulled her over. Although the woman told the officer that she did not have illegal substances in her car, she refused to search the vehicle.
After the officer asked if she had anything in the car that she should not, Christy admitted that a methamphetamine pipe was in her purse. She also told the officer that the pipe belonged to someone else. After this admission, Christy consented to a search of her vehicle by the officer.
According to local news source Austin-American Statesman, the woman had more than a methamphetamine pipe in her vehicle. “The [arrest affidavit] said that inside the car, the officer found a plastic cup with meth inside of it, a bag containing a meth pipe and a black digital scale with meth residue on it.”
Arrested and taken to jail
Christy was then arrested and taken to the Williamson County Jail. It was there that more methamphetamine was found in her possession. According to the arrest affidavit the woman was hiding the illegal substance inside her vagina, which was found during a strip-search. The strip-search was performed because Christy had been arrested on a narcotics charge.
Cassandra Christy has been charged with manufacturing / delivery of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. She’s currently locked in the Williamson County Jail with bail set at $ 60,500.
The methamphetamine epidemic is growing at a rapid pace and shows no sign of slowing down. ” According to the 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), approximately 1.2 million people (0.4 percent of the population) reported using methamphetamine in the past year, and 440,000 (0.2 percent) reported using it in the past month.”
Remember that it’s easier to refuse drugs than to get out of trouble because of using them. In the event that you loved one is in need of a bail bondsman to get out of the Williamson County Jail, call Freedom Bail Bonds.
