A local woman who was found hiding in the front seat of a truck was arrested on a warrant and drug-related charges.
Katelynn R. Williams, 25, 2127 Central Ave., was arrested at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday on charges of possession of heroin, possession of paraphernalia, legend drug-injection devices and an out-of-county warrant, said Lt. Matt Harris, Columbus Police Department spokesman.
Columbus Police Department officer Travis Harbaugh was walking past a vehicle in the 1600 block of Central Avenue early Sunday when he saw a woman crouched down inside a truck, Harris said.
Harbaugh identified her as Williams and learned she had warrant out of Marion County, Harris said.
When officers searched Williams’ purse, they found a small amount of heroin as well as drug paraphernalia, three digital scales and several syringes.
Williams is being held in the Bartholomew County Jail without bond, jail officials said.
