TAHLEQUAH — A Hulbert woman is facing charges for possession of methamphetamine after her mid-October arrest.

Autumn Michelle Reynolds, 20, is accused of possessing a controlled dangerous substance, obstructing an officer, unlawfully possession drug paraphernalia, and being intoxicated in public.

Reynolds was arrested by Sheriff’s Deputy Bryan Qualls on Oct. 11. Qualls said he stopped to assist an assisted motorist and found Reynolds behind the wheel of the vehicle. Reynolds was unsteady on her feet when she exited the vehicle, and also had slurred speech, Qualls said.

Reynolds allegedly told the deputy she had taken two Lortabs about an hour earlier. She also gave a false name – “Ashla” – and birth date, Qualls said.

According to Qualls, Reynolds eventually admitted to her real name and told the deputy where to find her identification. When Qualls found the ID, he also discovered two needles, a bag of a green substance, a crystal-like substance, two pills, and a smoking pipe with residue on it.

Records show Reynolds was given a $15,000 bond and is due back in court Nov. 5.
