Police find drugs, counterfeit bills

A Jamestown woman faces multiple charges after a police search of her vehicle produced methamphetamine, a marijuana pipe and grinder, syringes and counterfeit bills.

According to the police report, Lindsay Rose Stroh, 29, was taken into custody after police responded to an anonymous call of a suspicious vehicle parked in McElroy Park near the veterans’ bridge. A police search found an empty bottle of whiskey, an empty beer can and a partially empty bottle of red wine.

Officers also found in the vehicle a glass pipe with marijuana residue, two needled syringes, a marijuana grinder with a small amount of marijuana in it along with a small baggie of white powder suspected to be methamphetamine.

A search of a purse found in the car produced two counterfeit bills, one $10 bill and one $100 bill, in the same wallet that had Stroh’s Social Security card in it.

Stroh was cited for no proof of insurance, false registration and open container and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of drug paraphernalia other than marijuana, possession of methamphetamine and possession of counterfeit currency.

The marijuana paraphernalia possession charge is a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum penalty of one year imprisonment and a $3,000 fine. The other possession charges are Class C felonies punishable by a maximum penalty of five years imprisonment and a $10,000 fine.

Two passengers with Stroh, a man and a woman, were not charged and allowed to leave the scene.
