A Macon County woman is behind bars after officers discovered approximately 7 grams of methamphetamine in her possession.
According to the Affadavit of Complaint, Deputy Josh Meador and Sergeant Jacob Law arrived at a residence on Wixtown Rd. during the early morning hours of October 25, 2021, following a report of an intoxicated individual.
