According to officials, an Arkansas woman faced multiple charges after police found that she was wearing a methamphetamine bag disguised as a bow in her hair.
Jessica Kropp, 38, was arrested on Sept. 24 in Flippin, Arkansas around 100 miles northeast of Fayetteville, after being pulled over for driving with expired tags.
Flippin Police Officer Kenneth Looney noted that Kropp initially failed to stop and sped through a nearby neighborhood before finally pulling over.
Once Looney asked for a driver’s license, according to police, Kropp said it was suspended. She also told the officer that she had no insurance and borrowed the car because she didn’t know where the vehicle’s registration was.
Looney also discovered that Kropp had five warrants out for her arrest, including four failure to appear warrants and one failure to pay fines to warrant.
Looney then told Kropp to get out of the car and he arrested her.
“As I was detaining Jessica Kropp, I observed what appeared to be a bow in her hair,” Looney said. “The bow appeared to be a small, zip-locked bag containing a white crystal-like substance of suspected methamphetamine.”
Looney described the bag as having around the middle a small rubber band, giving it a bow shape, adding that it was attached to a bobby pin. He said it was on the right side of Kropp’s head, attached to her hair.
But when Looney asked Kropp, she said she didn’t know that was there, someone else put that there and she didn’t know what it was.
According to the affidavit, Looney searched the car and reported finding several bags of meth and drug paraphernalia.
Kropp was charged with possession of meth with the intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving on a suspended license, no liability insurance and a failure to appear misdemeanor.
She was taken to prison in Marion County and held instead of a $22,530 bail.
