GREENWOOD, Ind. - A Martinsville woman was arrested Thursday while allegedly doing drugs in the Johnson County Sheriff Department's parking lot.
Around 2 a.m. Thursday, deputies were alerted that a woman was possibly doing drugs in a parked Chevrolet Malibu in the sheriff's department parking lot.
Officers approached the vehicle to find a 7-year-old boy standing outside with a blanket. Inside the car, officers found 32-year-old Melissa Copas, as well as a mirror with a line of white powder laid on it and an orange and white capsule later determined to be amphetamine.
