As officers approached the car they had stopped, they were met with the odor of alcohol and saw the passenger in the vehicle attempt to hide a Boones Farm bottle between the center console and her leg.

Jenea Sherman, 35, of Eleanor, was told a female officer was on the way to search her. Sherman then told officers she had $50 worth of methamphetamine located in her bra. Further investigation revealed the methamphetamine in her bra weighed approximately 0.4 grams.

Sherman was charged with conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance (counterfiet) and possession of a controlled substance. Her bond was set at $5,000.

Robbie Matthew Thompson, 37, also of Eleanor, consented to a search. There was 3.7 grams of methamphetamine. Thompson had several types of drug paraphenalia in his pockets.

A clear bag containing a white, powdery substance with empty capsules and a bottle of Niacin. Thompson advised the white substance in the clear bag was Niacin, which he intended to sell as methamphetamine.
