A Loudon woman is facing multiple charges after law enforcement responded to a call Jan. 28 of a vehicle running at a local business.

Loudon County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Marshall Lynn was notified by detectives that Jodi Lynn McDonald was in a blue Toyota Camry. Lynn found McDonald slumped over the steering wheel. The vehicle was running and in drive with a 2-year-old child in the back seat.

“I stood beside the window for several minutes and remained unnoticed by Jodi McDonald,” Lynn wrote in a report.

After another deputy arrived, McDonald was given several orders to exit the vehicle. She refused. She was then forcefully removed from the vehicle and placed in the back seat of Lynn’s patrol vehicle.

“During an inventory of the vehicle prior to the tow, Deputy Huskin located a plastic bag containing .7 grams of a crystalline substance, which later tested positive for methamphetamine,” Lynn wrote in the report. “Deputy Huskin also located four hypodermic needles, a straw (used for narcotics ingestion), several more plastic baggies, a digital scale and several cotton filters.”

McDonald, 35, was charged with child endangerment, driving under the influence, identity theft, manufacture, sell or delivery of a Schedule II substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest and held on $53,000 bond.

Woman caught with meth

About midnight Jan. 28, Lenoir City Police Officer Jonathan Yates saw a van at a gas station off U.S. Highway 321 with two occupants who appeared nervous when he drove by.

The van went to a nearby motel, parked and left the headlights on. Yates notes in his report there had been “several car burglaries the past couple months at local hotels.”

Yates drove by the van again but only saw the passenger. After the van left, Yates stopped the vehicle and talked with the driver, Amanda Ellen Cox, who tried to conceal something in the door. Cox and the passenger told the officer they had been visiting a relative.

Yates asked Cox to exit the vehicle and received consent to search inside from another passenger, which was the vehicle’s owner.

“I immediately found a clear bag with a crystal substance with (1/2) wrote on it in the door,” Yates wrote in a report. “It is suspected methamphetamine. I found another bag of meth in the floorboard and a set of digital scales for weighing drugs (total 23.3 grams).”

Cox said the meth was hers and she was selling it.

“At the jail, a search of (her) bra uncovered six more bags of meth (19.1 grams) and two loaded needles,” Yates wrote.

Cox, 37, Sweetwater, was charged with contraband in a penal institution, manufacture, sell or possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia and held on $52,000 bond.
