Spring HIll, LA (KMSS) — Spring Hill officers busted a woman for a large amount of meth after she was allegedly caught parking illegally in handicap parking spot.
According to the Spring Hill Chief of Police Will Lynd, a Good Samaritan called and complained about a car parked in a handicap spot at a Dollar General on Main Street with no placard. When authorities arrived, they planned to ticket Reiny Ratliff, 20, for parking in a handicap spot and expired inspection sticker, but police stumbled across some unexpected items.
While authorities were speaking to Ratliff, the officer requested Identification, but the suspect claimed she could not find it and asked the officer to help look for it. During a search for the ID, officials found a marijuana pipe.
A warrant was obtained after the discovery, and a search of the woman's car and purse followed. Meth was discovered in her purse. The street value of the drugs is about $30,000.
She was booked into the Webster Parish Jail. She is charged with possession of meth, possession of meth with intent to distribute more than 28 grams, resisting, expired inspection sticker and parking in handicap spot.
