A local woman was arrested on multiple drug-related charges after she was found unconscious and slumped over in the driver’s seat of a vehicle behind a Taylorsville business.
Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Deputy Teancum Clark was sent to 10800 N. U.S. 31 in Taylorsville about an unconscious person at 8:03 a.m. Thursday, deputies said. Clark found a silver car behind a business with a woman slumped over in the driver’s seat. After several attempts to wake her, Clark opened the car door and shook her shoulder and saw that she had a plastic baggie with two syringes in her hands, deputies said.
The baggie also contained three pills, three corner baggies with a white powdery substance and three foil packets of a brown powder, deputies said. The woman was identified as Kyra Miller, 30, 5221 Ohio Ridge Road, deputies said.
As deputies searched the vehicle, they found more syringes, black scales, foil and more baggies in the back seat. Miller was checked by paramedics before being taken to the Bartholomew County Jail on preliminary charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of heroin, possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia and legend drug injection devices, deputies said.
The jail staff also found a counterfeit $20 bill on Miller when she was booked into jail, deputies said.
