One of the alleged users, Martha House was reportedly in possession of needles and syringes when Laurel Sheriff’s Deputy Shawn Jackson conducted an investigation at a south Laurel business. When Jackson asked House about the injecting instruments they recovered, he saw that the 24-year-old woman has a fresh needle mark on her arm, The Sentinel-Echo reports.
House, who is from Mill Creek Road, admitted that she injected some meth an hour before investigators arrived. The sheriff also recovered three small plastic bags that contain white crystalline substance.
When Jackson questioned House about the bags, the woman purportedly said that it was methamphetamine that was laced with flakka drug.
While the sheriff was investigating House, another woman with her, who was identified as Vanessa Volter reportedly left the vehicle in a hurry and went inside a building.
Jackson allegedly asked the woman to stop but she presumably screamed and started swearing. She also resisted police arrest and continued shouting. Authorities believed that a dangerous substance contributed to her strange behavior.
House faces charges of first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and public intoxication-controlled substances.
As for Volter, she was arrested on charges of resisting arrest and public intoxication controlled substance, but she was released on Saturday.
In the other drugs related news, Katrina Flowers, who went in public naked and yelled at a cop in August, appeared in court on Wednesday.
According to WFMJ, Flowers, who is from Niles, was found guilty of vandalism, resisting arrest and assault on a police officer.
During the court hearing, an officer released a surveillance video showing Flowers standing naked in front of a police car. A few seconds later, she started kicking the window of the vehicle.
Police believed that Flowers was under the influence of a designer substance like flakka drug when the incident took place because she manifested weird behavior just like the other bath salt users.
