TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Lafayette woman will spend time in jail for possession of methamphetamine.
Police say on Nov. 15, 2016 an SUV was pulled over on Veterans Memorial Parkway for failing to signal a turn. The SUV also was displaying plates that didn't match the vehicle.
When stopped, the driver and a passenger, 36-year-old Amber Adwell of Lafayette, fled the vehicle and took off on foot, leaving the SUV to be impounded.
A search of the vehicle turned up nearly 30 grams of methamphetamines hidden inside the headliner as well as several notes used as a ledger to record drug sales.
In November, Adwell pleaded guilty to charges of possession of methamphetamine.
She has been sentenced to six years with the Indiana Department of Correction and will take part in the IDOC's Purposeful Incarceration program which upon completion, could make Adwell eligible for a shorter sentence.
