Woman faces drug charges

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

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

Dodge said the vehicle occupants appeared nervous and he later determined that the front-seat passenger — Aimee L. Davis, 27, of 3877 Rosewood Lane — 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.

She was being held in the jail in lieu of $117,500 bond, jail officials said.
