35-year-old Aja Graves was charged with possession of a schedule I drug, possession of a schedule II drug, possession of a schedule III drug, and drug paraphernalia after allowing a deputy to search her purse so that she could sit in his patrol vehicle.
Deputy Seth Kinslow noticed a woman sitting out in the cold and went to speak with her. The woman was identified as Aja Graves and she told the deputy that she had been at the Double E Bar and had gotten into a fight with her boyfriend. Deputy Kinslow reported that Aja had an odor of an intoxicant coming from her person. The deputy then saw a man walking on the other side of the ride who called out Aja’s name. Deputy Kinslow told Aja to stay put and went to meet the man. The man asked for a ride back to Aja but they found that she had left her previous location. Deputy Kinslow found her on Matterhorn Drive.
The deputy said that she could sit in his car if she left her purse outside and she asked him why. The deputy stated that he did not know what was in her purse. Aja said that there was nothing in there and allowed Deputy Kinslow to search it. Deputy Kinslow found a makeup bag in her purse that contained a loaded syringe. There was also a cigarette pack with a plastic bag inside that contained a Buprenorphine Hydrochloride pill, a half pill of Dextroamphetamine, and a folded up piece of paper that had a pink powdered substance inside. Aja did not have a valid prescription for any of the drugs.
Aja Graves was arrested and charged with possession of a schedule I drug, possession of a schedule II drug, possession of a schedule III drug, and drug paraphernalia. She was jailed until her court date on January 8th. While in court she entered a plea deal and plead guilty to 1 simple possession charge. All other charges were subsequently dropped and she was released with 1-year probation.
