Possession of methamphetamines and drug paraphernalia. Detectives served a search warrant at the home of a 24-year-old woman on June 9, looking for drugs, according to a Sheriff's Office report.
They found meth, narcotics, a digital sale and plastic baggies in her bedroom.
When detectives questioned her, the woman admitted that the items were hers, and "added that she mainly invites individuals over solely to 'get high' with them," according to the report.

Filing a false police report; using fraud to obtain a driver's license. On April 30, deputies pulled a local man over in a traffic stop and asked him for his license.
He said he didn't have it, telling deputies, "last time you stopped me, you took it."
Deputies checked body camera footage of the last time they'd pulled the man over, and the video showed a deputy handing him back his license, according to a Sheriff's Office report.
One June 12, deputies pulled the man over again. Again, he didn't have his license, and said deputies hadn't given it back to him during a prior traffic stop. "I don't have money to get another," he said.
On June 14, the man walked into a Sheriff's Office branch location and reported that someone had broken into his car on June 9 and stolen his wallet, containing his driver's license.
He said he needed the theft report to avoid paying the $30 state fee for a replacement license.
The man then went to a DMV office and filled out the paperwork for a duplicate license, requesting a fee waiver because his had been stolen.
Deputies noted that on June 12, several days after the supposed theft had occurred, the man had been blaming the Sheriff's Office for his missing license and had said nothing about it having been stolen from his car.
They arrested him for filing a false theft report and obtaining the license fraudulently.
