Female Has No Idea How Meth And Meth Pipe Found Way To Front Pocket

Posted 8/14/2012 11:58 AM by KWESTBERG

On August 13, 2012, at about 10:45 p.m., Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy P. Pfeifer was patrolling the area of Trent Ave. and Evergreen Rd. Deputy Pfeifer ran the license plate of a vehicle in the parking lot at a convenience store and saw the registered female owner of the vehicle had a warrant for her arrest.

A female matching the description of the registered owner exited the driver's door of the vehicle and walked towards a pay phone. Deputy Pfeifer contacted the female and asked if she was Adrianne Hicks. Hicks told Deputy Pfeifer she was in fact Adrianne Hicks and when Deputy Pfeifer asked her if she knew she had a warrant, Hicks said she did.

Deputy Pfeifer confirmed the warrant through dispatch and placed Hicks under arrest. Prior to placing Hicks into his patrol car, Deputy Pfeifer searched her clothing and located a glass pipe, containing a white powdery substance, in Hicks front right shorts pocket. Hicks told Deputy Pfeifer she smokes methamphetamine, but was not sure when she last smoked. Hicks also told Deputy Pfeifer she knew the pipe was for smoking methamphetamine and it was in her front pocket, but that she had no idea how it got there. Deputy Pfeifer field tested the white substance inside the pipe and received a positive indication for the presence of methamphetamine.

Hicks was booked into the Spokane County Jail for the charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance, methamphetamine, and a misdemeanor DUI warrant.
