An Augusta woman was arrested Thursday for possession of methamphetamine.

During a routine traffic stop, Deputy William Mundy noticed Keele Snell Mazur, 33, sitting in the passenger seat with the physical appearance and mannerisms of someone who abuses methamphetamine, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s report.

Mundy asked the suspect if there were any drugs in the vehicle and Mazur stated “there are not,” the report said.

Mundy asked “Do you give me permission to search your vehicle for drugs?” The suspect replied “Go on ahead, ain’t nothing in there,” the report stated.

Where Mazur was sitting, deputy Mundy found two used syringes with swabs wrapped in a black paper bag.

Once at the jail, deputies found a small plastic wrap containing white crystals in Mazur’s front pocket. Mundy field tested the crystals, which proved positive for methamphetamine, the report stated.

The total weight was 0.5 grams, according to the report.

The nice thing about druggies

The nice thing about druggies is that they are really stupid which makes them easy to catch.

I agree dichotomy, but isn't

I agree dichotomy, but isn't profiling a no-no?

"physical appearance and mannerisms of someone who abuses methamphetamine,"

itsa, you can spot a tweaker

itsa, you can spot a tweaker a mile away. Nobody looks and acts like a speed freak except a speed freak.

Ummm, Not So Sure...

I see IAD's point. She wasn't driving. I can spot drunks, addicts and insane people on the streets too. Do you search all of them looking for something illegal? No wonder the jails run out of money. It will cost the city lots to keep her a couple of months. She won't pay.

The driver?
Unpublished

Why would the deputy ask the passenger for permission to search the vehicle? Wouldn't the driver be asked?

Good Nab

This was a good nab. While you are all slamming the deputy, just MAYBE, this could be her "wake-up call". This is the time that we should be trying to intervene. Good job Deputy Mundy - maybe you've made a difference. We can only hope. If this is profiling, I support it. Don't be doing anything illegal, and if you do get 'profiled', you're clean.

It is OK...

It is OK for police to profile American citizens but when you start doing it to illegal aliens...woe be unto you.

The tweakers should just go

The tweakers should just go ahead and hang a sign around their neck, "I do meth", because it is so obvious.
