36-year-old Ashley Dyer told police that “aliens were coming to get her and worms were coming out of her skin” before she was charged with possession of heroin, drug paraphernalia, and public intoxication.
On May 6th, Officers McPeak and Mathis arrived at the Dollar General Store located at 8702 Stewart Ferry Pike for a report of suspicious subjects. The manager pointed out two individuals, Caster Williams and the defendant, Ashley Dyer, as the suspicious individuals.
Officers described Williams as unsteady on his feet and could not stay awake. Williams told the police he had smoked marijuana before leaving his residence. They found a grinder in his backpack after they searched him. Dyer was sitting on the ground scooting around and telling the police “aliens were coming after her” and that “worms were coming out of her skin”.
A white rock-like substance determined to be Epson Salt to keep the aliens away was located around the vehicle, per report. In Dyer’s backpack, police found a bottle of esomeprazole magnesium with suspected heroin in it as well as metal spoons and needles in her vehicle.
Ashley Dyer was arrested and charged with possession of heroin, unlawful drug paraphernalia, and public intoxication. Her bond was set at $5,000.
