A woman was arrested Friday evening on drug charges and disorderly conduct after a deputy noticed erratic driving, according to the report from the Baxter County sheriff's office.
A deputy observed erratic driving on State Highway 342 and pulled over the vehicle. The deputy smelled burned marijuana as he approached the vehicle, the report said. A man was driving, and Jessie Dominique Moore, 30, of Mountain Home was in the passenger seat.
The deputy searched the car and Moore's purse where he found a plastic bag containing suspected marijuana and a smoking pipe inside a package of cigarettes. The man was released, and the deputy arrested Moore.
Moore was taken to the jail where a thorough search of her bag was performed. The deputy discovered a pill bottle with the label scratched out containing 35 Diazepam 10 mg pills, one Diazepam 1mg pill, 13 Alprazolam pills, eight Carisoprodo pills and three Methylphenidate Hydrochloride pills.
Moore did not have a prescription for these pills. She was charged with possession of a controlled substance, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia.
