Wendy D. Mitchell, age 36, was arrested Monday afternoon, August 27, after screaming and acting belligerent at a local business.
According to authorities, the Macon County Sheriffs Office received a report of an individual around a vehicle at Westside Mini Storage acting unstable.
Detectives Shane Gregory and Kevin Templeton arrived at the scene and made contact with the female subject, identified as Wendy Mitchell of Lafayette.
Mitchell was screaming, could not communicate and appeared to be under the influence of some type of narcotic.
Officers placed her under arrest for public intoxication.
The owner of the storage business asked that Mitchell’s vehicle be removed from the property, and officers began inventorying the vehicle before towing it.
Found inside was approximately 9.5 grams of methamphetamine, a digital scale, numerous small baggies typically used to package narcotics for resale and bladed ‘Wolverine’ brass knuckles.
Mitchell – and her vehicle – were transported to the Macon County Sheriff’s Department where she was booked on charges of possession of a schedule II drug, public intoxication, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a schedule II drug for the purpose of resale.
Her bond was set at $50,500, and she is scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on September 5.
At the time of her arrest, Mitchell was out on bond for possession of meth and drug paraphernalia two weeks prior.
