The Paris Police Department has released additional information regarding the arrest of a Paris woman who hid about 30 grams of methamphetamine inside her body while being taken into custody early Saturday.

Tammy R. Medlock, 59, 3089 County Home Road, was wanted for arrest for being a felon in possession of a vicious dog, according to a PPD press release.

Officers with the PPD, Henry County Sheriff’s Department and Metro Crime Unit went to her residence shortly after 11 p.m. Friday to take her into custody. Officers then searched her home and found several pieces of drug paraphernalia.

Once Medlock was taken to the Sheriff’s Department to be booked into jail, a search indicated that she might have been concealing drugs “on her person.”

Medlock was taken to Henry County Medical Center to be searched further. The search revealed that Medlock had about 29.6 grams of meth inside of her.

The drugs were recovered and Medlock was taken to jail without further incident.

She was charged with possession of Schedule II drugs with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver; tampering with evidence; introducing contraband into a penal institution; and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Medlock’s bond was set at $37,000; she is set to appear Thursday in Henry County General Sessions Court.
