Berea police arrested two women on drug-related charges after officers received a tip about a possible drug transaction in the parking lot of Urgent Care Friday.

Officers arrived and found two vehicles in the parking lot, and police dogs were used to sniff around both vehicles, according to an arrest citation.

The dogs alerted officers to the presence of drugs in one of the vehicles, and officers found a box under a seat containing 12 grams of marijuana, 0.7 grams of methamphetamine and a tablet believed to be ecstasy.

Both Sabrina Neeley, 32, Mount Vernon, and Natalie Baldwin, 31, Walnut Meadow Road, Berea, were in the vehicle.

Baldwin said she had stuff in her bra, as well, and she then turned over 4.9 grams of crystal methamphetamine to officers, as well as an unknown amount of heroin and $300.

Baldwin is charged with first-degree controlled substance possession (heroin), first-degree controlled substance trafficking (methamphetamine) and buying/possessing drug paraphernalia.

Neeley is charged with marijuana possession, first-degree controlled substance possession (methamphetamine), first-degree controlled substance possession (drug unspecified) and buying/possessing drug paraphernalia.

Both women were taken to the Madison County Detention Center. Baldwin remained in jail Tuesday afternoon, and Neeley was released later on Friday.
