From staff reports

A trip to Dollar General resulted in a detour to the detention center for three Jessamine County women.
Amy Renee Clark, 38, of 1665 Jessamine Station Pike in Nicholasville, was arrested Aug. 3 for possession of a controlled substance (heroin), possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to a citation released by the Nicholasville Police Department.
Officers were dispatched to Orchard Center for possible drug use in the parking lot of the Dollar General. Clark was observed in the front passenger side of the vehicle where officers allegedly saw her lean over with her had in her lap and a small mirror in her hand, according to the citation.
Clark was asked to step out of the vehicle and was questioned as to what she was seen doing. She allegedly told officers she was picking something out of her eye. Another female in the vehicle, Kayla Duncan, was asked to step outside and consent to search both individuals and the vehicle was given.
Clark informed officers she had methamphetamine in her bra, according to the citation. At this time, Alice Faye Tamayo was located inside the Dollar General and was brought outside for questioning.
A black handbag was found in the vehicle which all three women denied ownership of. Inside the bag, officers confiscated a small black nylon container which contained several syringes, one of which was loaded with a semi clear liquid, several straws and a spoon with a small cotton ball.
All three women were arrested and transported to the Jessamine County Detention Center according to the citation.
