Woman Hid Meth In Disney Princess Purse, Police Say
Police arrested an Elkins woman they say had methamphetamine in a “Disney Princess” purse during a traffic stop.
Amy Michelle Morgan, 36, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of felony possession of a controlled substance. She remained in the Washington County Detention on Monday on $2,500 bond.
An officer observed Morgan perform a traffic violation while pulling out from the Kum and Go at College Avenue and Township Street in Fayetteville, police said. Rodney Bartram, her 44-year-old passenger, had a history of drug abuse and a contempt warrant out for his arrest.
Police searched the car and found a small plastic baggie of methamphetamine stuffed in a green vinyl “Disney Princess” coin purse that was in the glove compartment, according to a preliminary report from the Washington County Prosecutor’s Office.
Morgan and Bartram were placed under arrest. Bartram faces a charge of failure to pay fines and cost. He remains in the detention center on $1,115 bond.
