Woman arrested on drug-related charges after traffic stop

A local woman who was reportedly acting suspiciously inside a Columbus store was arrested on drug-related charges after a traffic stop.

Columbus Police Officer Wesley Dodge stopped a vehicle that the woman was a passenger in at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at 17th Street and Gladstone Avenue.

Dodge said the occupants of the vehicle were extremely nervous and he determined that the front-seat passenger, Amiee L. Davis, 27, Columbus, had syringes concealed in her clothing, said Lt. Matt Harris, Columbus Police Department spokesman.

A short time later, after Davis was transported to the Bartholomew County Jail, jail staff recovered several needles that Davis had concealed in her clothing, Harris said. When searching Davis’ purse, another needle, drug paraphernalia and a small amount of methamphetamine were found, Harris said.

Davis was arrested on preliminary charges of possession of a legend drug injection device, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of methamphetamine, Harris said.
