Officers initiated a traffic stop and asked Patricia Roberts, Mt. Vernon Road, Berea, to step out of the vehicle to perform a field sobriety test. After failing the field sobriety procedures, police asked to search her car, according to a citation.
Inside of Roberts' purse, police found a small clear plastic container that contained a crystal-like substance believed to be crystal methamphetamine weighing 3.2 grams. Located in the change purse was $2,471 and in the change purse zipper side, police located 2.1 grams of suspected methamphetamine, the citation noted.

After a blood draw at Saint Joseph Hospital Berea, Roberts was booked into the Madison County Detention Center, where she remained Monday afternoon, according to online jail records.

Madison County deputies arrested two individuals early Sunday morning after responding to suspicious activity call on Mt. Vernon Road.
When deputies arrived, they made contact with Jessica Gilvin, 27, of Winchester and John Obregon, 28, of Boone Street, Berea, who said they were getting items from a storage unit, according to a citation.
According to deputies, Obregon was acting nervous and suspicious. After inquiring about the ownership of the vehicle, deputies asked if there was anything in the vehicle they should know about, to which Obregon stated, "Yes, I have crystal meth in the car."
As deputies looked into the car, they could see a baggie containing a crystalized substance in plain view. A search of the vehicle resulted in deputies finding smaller baggies with suspected methamphetamine inside of a Coach purse, which when asked, Gilvin claimed as hers, according to a second citation.
Also found in a zebra print bag were six more baggies containing suspected methamphetamine, a scale and marijuana. Obregon and Gilvin denied ownership of these items, both citations state.
Obregon and Gilvin were booked into the MCDC, where they remained Monday afternoon, according to online jail records. They are both charged with first-offense controlled substance trafficking, marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia possession.
