Alexandria Police arrest a woman for a drug-related crime while in her car at 2:45 this morning. 23-year-old Ashley Elliot of Boyce was heard screaming in her car by police.
Officers with the Alexandria Police were parked, when they heard loud screaming. The screams appeared to be coming from a female nearby. They began to search the area by following the screams, and then located a female sitting in a vehicle; when she saw the officers she started to drive off. She was stopped and questioned about what was wrong.
She told the officers she was just venting. The officers then observed a small child in the back seat. The officers then asked for her driver’s license and she could not produce one. She gave them a wrong name at first, and when the officers told her that name was not in the system she gave them the right name.
It was then learned her license were suspended. When asked to get out the vehicle, she refused; she stated she did not feel safe. A female officer was called to the scene and she still refused to get out the vehicle. The officers then removed her from the vehicle and placed her under arrest.
Officers observed a glass smoking pipe in the area she was sitting, several pills and a small baggie with what appeared to be crystal methamphetamine. Elliott was arrested and booked into the Rapides Parish Jail.
The child that was in the backseat was turned over to her grandmother.
Ashley Marie Elliott was charged with driving under suspension, possession of CDS II (methamphetamine), possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a legend drug.
This case is still under investigation.
