North Augusta officers were called to Circle K, 1014 Edgefield Road, around 2:45 a.m. for a suspicious woman who had been there for about two hours and in the restroom for the past 30 minutes.
According to an incident report, Terra Nicole Allen, 30, came out of the restroom but immediately went back in after seeing the officer. The officer stated Allen flushed the toilet several times before exiting and telling the officer she was having stomach issues.
The report stated the officer entered the stall to find the toilet water still moving but he did not find “anything indicative of the bathroom recently being used for its intended purposes.”
The officer located a glass smoking device and a small bag of crystal methamphetamine hidden in a trash can under numerous unused toilet seat covers.
The officer said Allen told him, “That’s not mine,” and “I don’t smoke meth,” before he asked her about the drugs.
She later admitted to being addicted and using drugs in the restroom. She also told the officer she had flushed a pill down the toilet.
Allen was booked into the Aiken County Detention Center on charges of possession of methamphetamine and disorderly conduct.
