Troy police arrested a woman for drug possession Dec. 2 after an officer noticed drug paraphernalia inside her vehicle during a routine traffic stop. According to a probable cause statement, Julia Freeman, 35, whose last known address was in Lebanon, Mo., was originally pulled over for a defective license plate light at Hwy. J and Spanish Oak Court in Troy at approximately 11:17 p.m. While gathering Freeman’s information, the officer noticed an open package of syringes laying on the rear floor board in plain sight.
After getting Freeman’s consent to search the vehicle, police found a makeup bag containing five credit cards in the woman’s name, along with four more hypodermic needles, one of which was filled with a clear liquid, and 13 packs of Suboxone sublingual films. After Freeman was transported to jail, a small bag holding a green leafy substance and a piece of folded note paper containing a crystal-like substance were later found on her person.
