JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A suspect is now facing more charges after she was caught trying to eat a bag of methamphetamine while being booked at the jail.

According to the Jonesboro police report, Officer Trey Chism responded to the Greene County line to pick up a suspect early Sunday morning.

A Greene County sheriff’s deputy told Officer Chism they found a small amount of marijuana on the suspect, 27-year-old Amanda Lee Bolin, and were just going to issue her a citation.

Bolin was taken to the Craighead County Detention Center because of warrants out of the county. 

When they arrived at the jail, Officer Chism told Bolin that if she had any other illegal items on her that she needed to tell him before they went inside the jail.

Bolin reportedly said she did not have anything on her.

While writing Bolin’s citations for her warrants, the officer heard her start chewing on something, according to the report.

He had her open her mouth but did not see anything.

When he went back to writing the citation, Bolin began choking.

He told her to spit out whatever she had. She spat out a “purple cap containing a clear plastic bag with a crystal substance in the bag believed to be methamphetamines.”

Bolin told the officer she did not know what it was.

When asked why she tried to eat it, she said she did not want to be charged for possession.

Bolin was cited for nonpayment of fines and given a court date of July 25 and a bond of $3,918.

She is also being charged with possession of methamphetamine, tampering with physical evidence, and furnishing prohibited articles.

She is being held at the Craighead County Detention Center awaiting a probable cause hearing.
