Ardmore police say Andrea Kinney, 53, of Ardmore, was arrested on Nov. 27 and charged with possession with intent to distribute. According to a police report, an officer made contact with Kinney at the 800 block of 4th Avenue SE just after 8 p.m. during a premises check. Kinney was allegedly found in possession of crack cocaine, a schedule II drug, and taken into custody. She was also found to have an outstanding warrant related to a 2014 DUI charge.
Ardmore police Capt. Eric Hamblin says cocaine is regularly encountered by local law enforcement, but not at the same rate as marijuana. Kinney was booked into the Carter County jail on a felony charge and remained in jail on Monday afternoon.
