38-year old Rachelle Clark was charged with possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia after the vehicle she was in was pulled over for expired tags and was subsequently searched by a K-9 unit.
On September 5th, LPD Officer Taylor observed a vehicle being operated with expired registration tags. Taylor pulled the car over and made contact with Rachelle Clark who was a passenger in the vehicle. Officer Taylor stated that Clark began to display erratic behavior which prompted Officer Taylor to summon a K-9 unit. A search of the vehicle was initiated when the K-9 alerted the officers to the presence of drugs in the passenger side door of the vehicle.
A white powdery substance believed by the officer to be heroin was found inside Clark’s wallet that was in Clark’s purse with a syringe. A continued search of the vehicle turned up a second syringe, a glass pipe, and a burnt spoon with residue, all of which are commonly used in the consumption of illegal drugs.
Rachelle Clark was arrested and charged with possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia. Her bond was set at $2,000.
She was booked again on September 9th and charged with failure to appear, public intoxication, drug paraphernalia, driving on a suspended license, and four violations of probation.
