Blotter: Woman suspected of leaving 'known drug house' arrested on drug charges

Denton police arrested a woman on drug charges Sunday after witnesses saw a suspect matching her description leave a "known drug house" earlier in the day, according to a police report. 

The woman, 31, had been standing with a man in the front lawn of a house in the 500 block of Chisholm Trail when an officer approached them, Denton police spokesman Shane Kizer said. 

Both people matched the description of the suspects who were seen leaving the alleged drug house, which was not specifically identified in the police report, Kizer said. When officers contacted the woman, they found what appeared to be a glass crack pipe in her possession, Kizer said. 

Police first arrested her on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. They later found marijuana and methamphetamine on her at the city jail, Kizer said. 

She was  charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
