Hot Springs Police Officer Werst was patrolling the area of Malvern Avenue last week, when he allegedly witnessed a black Mazda M6 improperly change lanes. Off. Werst stopped the vehicle at the Big Red on Malvern Avenue. During the stop, Off. Werst asked the driver, Lyndsie Jordan Culliver, 29, of Bull Bayou Road in Garland County, if there was anything in the vehicle he needed to know about before he had a K9 come smell around her vehicle.
Ms. Culliver allegedly stated she had a weed pipe on her, and handed a small green and brown wooden pipe to the officer. Off. Werst then asked Ms. Culliver to exit the vehicle. Before preforming a frisk search, Off. Werst asked her if she had anything else on her, to which she allegedly replied that she also had a glass pipe in her pants pocket that she had used to smoke meth with. Ms. Culliver was then arrested and put in the back of Off. Werst’s unit.
Upon searching the vehicle, Off. Werst allegedly found a small plastic dresser that contained a clear plastic bag containing a white substance, a small red plastic bag with a white substance, and three more glass pipes in the top dresser drawer. Both white substances field tested positive for meth.
Ms. Culliver was transported to the Garland County Detention Center for processing. After arriving at the Detention Center, Culliver allegedly stated she also had marijuana in her pocket.
Ms. Culliver is charged with Felony Possession Of A Controlled Substance (.3 grams meth), Felony Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia, Possession of a Controlled Substance (.4 grams marijuana), and Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia with a bond amount totaling $7000.
