Woman Brings Backpack Full of Drugs to Court

An important tip for anyone appearing in court on drug charges: Leave your drugs at home.

A 31-year-old Ohio woman learned this lesson the hard way when she showed up at Minerva Mayor’s Court earlier this week wearing a backpack that was stuffed with illegal drugs.

Elizabeth Darlene Wilson was already facing two counts of aggravated possession and one count of possession with intent to distribute when court officers took a look in her multi-colored backpack. In it, they found meth, MDA, 11 amphetamine and dextroamphetamine pills, a pipe with meth residue, 11 gabapentin capsules, a pot pipe and 2.32 grams of marijuana.

She now faces additional charges.
