A Gadsden woman faces four drug possession charges after a traffic stop Monday on Rainbow Drive, according to Rainbow City Police Chief John Bryant.
Sgt. Richard Roberts stopped a 2017 Hyundai Elantra at about 7:50 p.m. on Rainbow Drive near Luna Street for failing to signal a lane change. When he approached the vehicle, he noticed the female driver was visibly shaking and nervous, Lt. Je’Michael Bonner said in a press release.
Because of her reaction, officers asked if she had any illegal items, which she denied initially. Questioned further she admitted possession of methamphetamine, Bonner said. Officers located a bag containing a substance believed to be methamphetamine submerged in lemonade inside a cup near the vehicle’s center console.
In addition, officers discovered more than 20 Clonazepam tablets, several Alprazolam tablets and multiple Suboxone strips.
Donna Ann Pyburn, 40, was arrested and Etowah County Drug Enforcement Unit agents obtained warrants for four counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance. She is being held on bonds totaling $6,000.
