A woman staying with a friend in Rockmart and accused of using drugs in the residence ended up in custody on multiple felony charges after heroin, cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamines were discovered in her purse, according to a Rockmart Police report.
April Ann Davis, 45, of 713 Ashland Park, Rome, was arrested by Rockmart Police around 4:30 a.m. on Thursday morning after officers were called out to investigate a complaint of drug use inside of a Forrest Court residence.
Before an officer arrived there, he was flagged down by Davis who reported that “she was being kicked out of the residence due to (the complainant) “freaking out” and believing there were spiders all over the residence.”
When another pair of officers investigated at Forrest Court, they learned that the friend had confronted Davis about drug use in her son’s bedroom, an argument ensued, and Davis began to pack up and leave. The friend attempted to video the entire scene on a tablet, but “no evidentiary value was discovered on the tablet.”
The officer with Davis meanwhile was informed that her boyfriend was on the way in a taxi from Rome to get her. The officer offered to give her a ride in the back of his vehicle to a spot closer, but then changed her mind some when she learned she would be searched.
She offered up to officers first that she had a knife in her purse, then admitted to having marijuana when the officer further pressed her about what was inside.
He watched her go back to the Forrest Court location, and when the trio of officers were together and the situation from both sides explained, Davis was taken into custody and further searched.
Within her purse was a syringe believed to contain heroin, a metal cylinder tube with suspected meth residue within, a glass container suspected to be cocaine, a bag of suspected marijuana, partially smoked joints, a working digital scale and a glass pipe with suspected cocaine residue.
Police found no further narcotics within her possession or pockets.
She was taken to the Polk County Jail and booked on felony charges of possession of drugs near a park or housing project, possession of heroin, trafficking in cocaine, illegal drugs, marijuana, or methamphetamine, possession of a controlled or counterfeit substance or marijuana near a housing project or park, possession of methamphetamine and a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug related objects.
Bond had not yet been set as of this morning.
