An Elizabethtown woman is under arrest, accused of drug dealing after being arrested within 500 feet of a school.
32-year-old Jessica A. Comstock is facing charges of dealing and possessing methamphetamine, dealing and possessing heroin, possession of a legend drug injection device and driving while suspended.
Columbus police say that they stopped her vehicle at about 3:15 Thursday afternoon in the 600 block of California Street after noticing it had a false registration.
Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department police dog Diesel alerted to the smell of drugs in the vehicle and a search found syringes and other drug paraphernalia. Comstock was arrested and during a search, officers found the drugs.
