Two Florida women have been arrested on multiple charges, but one of the ladies had a little extra for deputies, inside of herself.
On Monday, July 25, 2022, at approximately 1847 hours, Deputy Ayers and Deputy Mathis were conducting a routine patrol on SR-20 near Clarksville.
Deputies saw a vehicle traveling east on SR-20 with illegal window tint on the vehicle. Subsequently, a traffic stop was conducted on the vehicle.
During the course of the traffic stop, Deputy Ayers deployed K9 Olly to conduct a free air sniff of the exterior of the vehicle and the K9 alerted to the odor of narcotics within the vehicle.
During the search of the vehicle, drug paraphernalia was found near where the driver, Kayla Marie Eddie, had been seated.
It was also discovered on the scene that the passenger had given deputies numerous fake names and birthdates when deputies were attempting to run her information.
