A woman who tried to flush evidence down a hotel toilet as lawmen converged to raid her room has been given two months in jail.
The woman, Kristi Nicole Thompson, 25, was directed to serve 59 days of a three-year sentence for promoting the manufacture of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Thompson was busted at Best Value Inn after a hotel clerk called police about suspicious activity in the room. When police arrived at the door, it took several minutes for Thompson to answer their knock. Police soon realized there was an outstanding warrant against her.
Lawmen entered the room and began a search. They found numerous items including a scale, baggies, syringes and components to make meth.
When policeman Bobby Anderson searched the bathroom he came across pills that had been put in the toilet bowl.
“She admitted putting the pills in the toilet,” Anderson revealed, the attempted flushing bringing the evidence tampering charge which was dropped as a result of her plea agreement.
Police found 7.2 grams of meth by the sink.
During the search, police noted Thompson started to nod off and became hard to wake up. An ambulance was called and she was taken to the hospital.
Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley agreed she could have her probation supervision transferred to Alabama if they will take her.
