HUTCHINSON, Kan. – A 26-year-old woman arrested early Wednesday by South Hutchinson Police for suspicion of being in possession of marijuana in a distribution amount was before a judge Thursday where she was told of the potential charges.
Mindy Mitchell also faces a possible charge of transporting an open container and no proof of insurance.
Police apparently spotted her driving northbound in the southbound lanes and they made a traffic stop. They could see an open beer bottle between her legs with another on the floor. That led to her initial arrest. When officers requested permission to search the vehicle, she became angry and told them they needed a warrant. She eventually admitted that she had drugs in the car. That did lead to a warrant and police say they found marijuana, marijuana wax and marijuana brownies.
She apparently admitted she came from Wichita after buying the drugs. In court, Magistrate Judge Cheryl Allen told he she needed to be quiet because of discussing the case with no attorney present.
The arrest coming at Prosperity and Main just after 4 a.m.
Her request for a reduction of the $2,700 bond was denied.
