JPD: Clerks find meth pipe in woman's clothes

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A woman who went to sell her clothes at a Jonesboro resale shop should have checked her pockets more closely.

Just before 2:30 p.m. Tuesday police were called to Plato’s Closet, 2100 Red Wolf Blvd., after an employee reported finding a meth pipe in a bag of clothing.

According to the incident report, the suspect brought in the clothes to sell.

Workers took the clothes to the back of the store where they found a plastic container inside a cardboard box.

Inside the box, according to the report, was a “glass pipe with a burnt end on it commonly used to smoke meth.”

An employee attempted to stall the suspect while another called police; but the suspect “became impatient” and left in a white Ford Explorer.
