Warrant charges woman with legend drug possessionFebruary 5, 2019
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Authorities booked a Spencer County woman into the Dubois County Security Center today on an arrest warrant charging her with unlawful possession of a legend (prescription) drug.
Court documents indicate the Level 6 felony count filed against Haley M. Maddox, 23, 417 S. Dunn St., Dale, stems from a Sept. 9 traffic stop conducted by the Huntingburg Police Department.
A Huntingburg officer stopped the 2007 Jeep Patriot Maddox was driving because the license plate was expired and because the plate returned to a 2001 Chevrolet passenger car.
The officer who issued a citation for fictitious plates and gave Maddox a warning for expired plates asked for and received consent to search the vehicle after noticing that Maddox seemed fidgety.
Police reported finding a small vile containing a red liquid in the center console that Maddox advised was something called “rush,” according to court documents. Maddox added that the substance was put in the car by someone else.
The officer told Maddox he would look further into the vile’s contents and get back with her. The subsequent investigation identified the substance as amyl nitrite, something that can be used to treat and prevent chest pain and requires a prescription.
Police notified Maddox she would be charged for possessing the legend drug without a prescription. An arrest warrant was issued out of Dubois Superior Court on Oct. 25. Authorities booked Maddox into the Dubois County Security Center at 12:41 a.m. today on the active warrant.
