A 28-year-old Tallahassee woman was arrested for a variety of drug charges on April 5 at 11:37 p.m. after she cut in front of a Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office Road Patrol lieutenant at a Crawfordville fast food restaurant and failed to maintain a single lane, according to Sheriff Charlie Creel.

Kristina Nicole Jenkins was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, one count of trafficking in a controlled substance, one count of possession of methamphetamines, one count of possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and five counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Lt. Sherrell Morrison observed Jenkins fail to maintain a single lane as she drove on Wakulla Arran Road. A traffic stop was conducted and Lt. Morrison smelled marijuana and observed a clear plastic bag containing marijuana inside the vehicle.

A search of the vehicle recovered five glass smoking pipes and $219 of rolled up currency which was discovered in Jenkins’ bra. Two containers were discovered that contained a powder that tested positive for the presence of methamphamines. In addition, an assortment of 33 prescription pills was found. A digital scale, butane lighter and marijuana grinder were also discovered.

Deputies recovered 7.13 grams of amphetamines and 2.4 grams of methamphetamines. A passenger in the vehicle was detained but not charged. The vehicle Jenkins was driving was impounded. Sgt. Lorne Whaley and Deputy Will Hudson also investigated.

Jenkins was transported to the Wakulla County Jail where she remains under an $83,000 bond.
