WYNNE, AR (KAIT) -

A traffic stop for a cracked windshield ended with a Wynne woman locked up in the Cross County Detention Center.

Early on the morning of Sept. 12, Deputy Allen Clanton stopped Jessica Earls, 36, on County Road 625, according to a news release from the sheriff’s department.

After learning she was wanted on a warrant, Clanton arrested Earls and took inventory of her personal items.

During the search, the deputy reportedly found 2.8 grams of methamphetamine (ICE) and drug paraphernalia, including “4 syringes, spoon, glass pipe, push rod and a strap used to tie off her arm.”

Clanton took Earls to the jail where she charged with felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was also cited for defective equipment.

Earls is currently free on $5,000 bond.
