JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Police arrested a Jonesboro woman after officers said they found $900 worth of meth in her bra and $100 worth of pot in her pants.

Mekiala M. Jones, 31, is charged with possession of meth or cocaine with the purpose to deliver greater than 2 grams but less than 10 grams, possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance with the purpose to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia, and a parole violation.

Just after 10 Sunday night, Officer Michael Talley stopped a white Chevy Impala at the intersection of Matthews and Caraway after the driver reportedly made several improper signals.

During the stop, Talley said he learned that the passenger, later identified as Jones, was a parolee on active supervision and asked Officer Alexandria Duncan to assist in searching her.

During the search, Duncan reported finding “multiple small clear plastic bags” of suspected methamphetamine, along with suspected crack cocaine in her bra.

Duncan told Jones she could also smell marijuana on her person, the report stated, and asked Jones if she had any on her.

“Ms. Jones then stated that she did and that it was located in the front of her pants,” Duncan said. “Ms. Jones then retrieved the marijuana from her pants along with multiple clear plastic bags.”

According to the report, officers seized 9 grams of marijuana, .25 grams of crack cocaine, and 9 grams of meth from Jones.

They also reported finding $775 in mixed bills in her jacket pocket.

The narcotics and money were seized and logged into evidence.

Talley took Jones to the Craighead County Detention Center and left on a parole hold to await a probable cause hearing.

The driver of the car was given a verbal warning and released.
