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.

She's flexible, she'll take whatever poison she can get her hands on.

The terrible part is that there is a suffering innocent child that deserves better for a mother.

So she got in trouble in 2013 and now in 2014. It looks like those 90-days to get clean programs don't work.

A mother who abuses drugs using money she probably gets from tax payers should go to prison. Obviously this repeat offender doesn't fear prosecution. Why should she when she knows all she'll get is a slap on the wrist and more opportunities to get high.

I used to feel sympathy for

I used to feel sympathy for drug addicts, but I have realized that is a waste of effort and that the real sympathy belongs to their family members for having to deal with their completely selfish behavior!
