Search of Nicholasville woman yields drugs, drug paraphernalia

A Nicholasville woman was arrested Jan. 7 for possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Kathy L. Moore, 40, of 257 Gainsville Drive, was served two out of county warrants at the listed address and upon officers making contact a search incident yielded a handbag within a purse that allegedly had the zippers locked, according to the citation.

Officers were able to pull the zippers apart and allegedly found paraphernalia within the bag. Once the lock was removed, officers removed multiple small clear bags, one of which allegedly contained residue of a white powdery substance.

Moore was read her Miranda rights, which she waived, according to the citation. Moore then advised officers that it contained methamphetamine. Officers then discovered a syringe, suspected filters, one Suboxone pill and another partial pill in the bag.

Moore was arrested and transported to the Jessamine County Detention Center, according to the citation.
