Sarah Lyn Pearl, 26 of Augusta has been accused of hiding 13 grams of crack cocaine in her body.

Pearl was stopped yesterday (July 21, 2015) at a convenience store on Bangor St. by police for having illegally attached plates on her truck. Because Pearl was out on bail for prior drug charges, police searched her car and the two people riding with her in the car.

A drug sniffing dog alerted police to the drugs on Pearl, but with a simple search, police didn’t find anything.

After a search warrant was obtained to x-ray her, she admitted to putting the drugs in condoms and carrying them in her body.

She then turned them over to police.

Pearl is facing even more drug charges after the traffic stop.
