Brandy L. Lane, 29, of Jefferson Township was charged with having more than a dozen empty stamp bags of suspected heroin and other drug contraband in connection with a Fourth of July traffic stop at Elm and East Locust streets.

An inventory search of the vehicle turned up a coin purse that was under Lane’s seat. The purse contained 14 empty bags of suspected heroin, a syringe and a Chore Boy copper scrubber.

The defendant admitted the items were hers. While she was being searched, documents said, a second syringe fell to the ground.

Lane is charge with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Which amounts to nothing more then a fine.
