Bunnell, Fla. — A 25-year-old woman is arrested in a Flagler County courthouse security line after she pulled a baggie of meth from her pocket.
The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office press release says Tessa Lilly was at the Kim C. Hammond Justice Center Wednesday morning for two non drug-related charges.
The metal detector alerted and when deputies asked her to empty her pockets, she placed a small plastic bag of a rock-like substance into a bucket.
According to the release, Lilly told deputies that it was makeup for her skin.
The substance tested positive for Methamphetamine and weighed 1.44 grams.
“She came to court with meth in her pocket?” Sheriff Rick Staly said in the press release. “Our security system at the courthouse worked. She obviously needs help and has not learned from her past mistakes. I hope this is a wake-up call to turn her life around and seek treatment for her addiction.”
The Sheriff’s Office says Lilly has previous narcotics arrests dating back to 2017.
