Hopkins County Deputies observed a vehicle parked at the roadside park on Highway 67 and found the driver of the auto, Ashley Suzanne McGill, 39, of Saltillo exhibiting signs of nervousness—quivering lips and shaky hands—as they began a conversation with her. She told the deputy that she did not have anything illegal in the vehicle.
However, when asked to exit the vehicle, she handed the officer two marijuana cigarettes, a small amount of a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana. In her purse was a clear baggie containing a crystal like substance believed to be methamphetamine. She also had a flip top container in her purse that held a second bag containing suspected meth. Other drug paraphernalia was also found in her possession.
McGill is in Hopkins County Jail Charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 more than 1-gram but less than 4-grams. She is held on a $10,000 bond.
