A local woman was arrested on drug charges after she was seen acting suspiciously inside a Columbus store on Saturday afternoon. Lt. Matt Harris, spokesman for the Columbus Police Department, says that Officer Wesley Dodge stopped a vehicle that the suspect was traveling in near 17th Street and Gladstone Avenue at approximately 3:30 p.m. While speaking with the vehicle’s occupants, Dodge noted that they appeared to be extremely nervous. He later determined that the front seat passenger, 27-year-old Aimee L. Davis, of Columbus, had syringes in her possession.

Davis was taken into custody and transported to the Bartholomew County Jail. A short time later, jail staff reported recovering several needles that Davis had concealed in her clothing. While searching Davis’ purse, Officer Dodge allegedly found another needle, drug paraphernalia and a small amount of methamphetamine.

Davis is facing preliminary charges of Possession of a Legend Drug Injection Device, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Possession of Methamphetamine.
