tammy-jean-suttleMADISONVILLE, Ky. (4/4/14) — The Madisonville Police Department received a complaint of a white female possibly intoxicated at 2115 South Main Street around 10:15 a.m. April 3.

According to a MPD report, officers made contact with Tammy J. Suttle, 43, struggling next to the vehicle that was described by dispatch. The officer asked for identification and she retrieved her purse from the vehicle. When Suttle opened her purse, the officer could see a hypodermic needle and Suttle said she didn't know why it was in her purse.

After Suttle gave officers permission to search her purse, they found a small clear bag containing a clear crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine. Also in the clear bag were crushed pills, one being a Dilaudid. Suttle told officers that she did not have a prescription. The clear crystal tested positive for methamphetamine in a field test kit, according to the report.

Suttle was charged with possession of a controlled substance, first degree, first offense (meth), possession of a controlled substance, first offense (drug unspecified), drug paraphernalia-buy/possess and public intoxication.
