North Augusta police are searching for a woman who gave authorities her neighbor’s name after she was found injecting drugs in a gas station in October.
Authorities were called to Greg’s Gas Plus in the 500 block of East Martintown Road about 10:30 p.m. Oct. 19 where they found a man and woman in their respective restrooms, along with needles in the trash can and a belt used for a tourniquet.
The couple admitted to melting a prescription painkiller and injecting it.
The woman identified herself to authorities as Jackie Hinkle. It was later brought to the authorities’ attention that the woman in the restroom was Ashley Marie Ivey, a neighbor of Hinkle.
Warrants have been obtained for Ivey on charges of giving false information and public drunkenness.
The male suspect, identified as Anthony Dove, 26, of the 1800 block of Hollis Avenue, was charged with public drunkenness.
