(From the Joplin Police Department)
Yesterday evening at 8:12 p.m. one of our officers stopped a vehicle at 7th and Byers for lane use.
The 40-year-old female driver from Sarcoxie lied to the officer about where he saw her leaving, and then stuffed a box containing a glass pipe down into the passenger seat.
The female had a second glass pipe and about 29 grams of meth (approximate $2,900 value) down the front of her pants. She was arrested for drug charges.
The 4-year-old child who was in the car was turned over to a different family member, who was called to the scene, and division of children's services was notified to begin an investigation.
