Woman charged with meth possession, ‘smurfing’

Police

RICHMOND —

Police have charged a London woman Friday with possessing methamphetamine and also attempting to buy one of the drug’s key ingredients to sell or trade for meth.

Lisa D. Hacker, 35, was arrested after Richmond police received reports about a man and woman acting suspiciously while trying to buy pseudoephedrine at Meijer and later at Rite Aid in the University Shopping Center, according to an RPD news release.

While police were unable to find the couple at Meijer, encountered Hacker and a male companion in a vehicle outside the store, the release stated.

Officers determined that Hacker was acquiring pseudoephedrine to sell for cash or trade for methamphetamine, a practice called “smurfing,” according to the RPD.

Officers searched the vehicle and reported finding a pipe with suspected meth residue in the bottom, rolling papers, a small amount of marijuana, a syringe, an open can of beer and a box of Claritin-D, which contained pseudoephedrine.

“Hacker was often unruly during the contact, screaming and yelling in the parking lot,” according to the release.

Hacker was charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a meth precursor, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of an alcoholic container in a motor vehicle and second-degree disorderly conduct.

She is being held under a $5,000 bond but she also has a warrant as a fugitive from another state, according to jail officials.

The man with Hacker was served with a bench warrant from Knox District Court on a charge of failure to appear.

Police arrest

woman on three

outstanding warrants

A Richmond woman was arrested on a variety of warrants, including one for a felony charge, when police say she tried to give them a false identity.

Jennifer G. Horn, 47, Eastern Bypass, was stopped by police Saturday in the parking lot of Rite Aid at the University Shopping Center while officers were conducting a drug trafficking investigation, according to an RPD news release.

The officer asked Horn to provide identification, but Horn used a name and identifying information of another person, the release stated.

The officer reported finding a marijuana cigarette and documents from Horn’s purse that revealed her true identity.

After learning Horn’s identity, the officer determined she had three outstanding arrest warrants – one from Madison District Court on a charge of failure to pay fines; another from Madison Circuit Court on charges of failure to appear and failure to pay child support; and a third from Scott Circuit Court for failure to appear on flagrant nonsupport charges.

Horn was charged with possession of marijuana and theft of identity and then taken to the Madison County Detention Center. She is being held under bonds totaling $25,683 and unpaid child support of $1,800, according to jail officials.
