Meth found in search


July 11, 2019

A Century woman was arrested July 4 and faces drug charges after law enforcement woke her inside her vehicle and searched her car to find methamphetamine and ecstasy (MDMA).

Katherine Susanne Lee, 34, 144 Hill Street, was passed out in a white Chevy Caprice at Tom Thumb, located at 392 South Highway 29 when law enforcement, advised by an anonymous citizen, approached the vehicle to awaken her, according to an Escambia County Sheriff's Office report.

The report said Lee's car was parked next to a gas pump with the door open and she was passed out at the wheel of the vehicle.

The officer woke Lee up and observed her to be sweating profusely, with dilated eyes and she was very thin in build, the report said.

Lee told the officer she had just received her daily dose of methadone from a clinic in the area and that she had fallen asleep. According to the report, the officer requested a search of the vehicle which produced a little white package containing four tablets of ecstasy from the same area where meth had also been located. The tablets were in animal shapes and two were yellow, one was orange and one was blue.

Lee was charged with one count felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor drug paraphernalia, arrested and transported to the Escambia County Jail, where she was given a total bond of $3,500.
