The woman woke up and reportedly told the officer she had just got off work and was tired. The officer asked if she had taken any medication after locating an orange pill bottle in plain view by the gear shift.

Her answer was no, police said.

She was allegedly reluctant at first to give police consent to search the vehicle, then granted consent. Her purse was also searched and a clear plastic bag with 2.5 grams of methamphetamine was found.

Sullivan was arrested and bond set at $1,000. She bonded out two days later, according to information from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
