A local woman has been arrested on multiple drug charges in an
investigation that began as a traffic stop on Thursday, February 13.
According to Wayne County Sheriff Tim Catron, Deputy Brent Rose and
Deputy Derek Dennis conducted a traffic stop at approximately 9:45
p.m. on Columbia Avenue.
Dennis arrested Angela K. Patrick, of Monticello, who was charged
with possession of a controlled substance first degree (drug

and for a traffic violation.
Patrick was also charged with promoting contraband first degree

said that she was found trying to hide a controlled substance that
she had on her person.
At 12:05 a.m. on Friday, February 14, Deputy Derek Dennis, Deputy
Brent Rose and Deputy Brad Tucker executed a search warrant at a
residence located at 88 Lincoln Avenue.
The deputies were following up on a drug trafficking tip and
information obtained from Patrick's arrest.
This information led them to obtain a search warrant, and upon its
execution, deputies seized methamphetamine, prescription drugs,
marijuana, digital scales, drug paraphernalia known to be used in
drug trafficking and an unknown brown substance.
As a result of the search warrant, deputies additionally charged
Patrick with trafficking in a controlled substance first degree (less

and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Patrick has been lodged in the Wayne County Detention Center.

possible additional charges being filed at a later date pending lab testing.
