Jailed Woman Facing New Charges for Meth Found in Bra
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Authorities say a Bonneville County woman arrested over the weekend for driving drunk and crashing a truck is facing new charges after jail officers found methamphetamine in her bra.
The Post Register reports that 30-year-old Bernadette Nugent faces a felony charge of conveying major contraband in a correctional facility for the Monday incident. She had initially been arrested Saturday after police say she stole a truck and crashed into the vehicle's owner, who had been following her in a 2007 Chevy Tahoe.
Police spokeswoman Joelyn Hansen says officers suspected Nugent had been driving under the influence. She is expected to appear in court April 29.
