Agents with the Douglas-Coffee Drug Unit reported that, during her arrest, police observed a woman trying to escape a drug charge by eating the crack cocaine she had in her possession.
While the drug unit officers were detaining Linda Blank, 48, they observed the woman eating through a small plastic bag and trying to swallow what appeared to be crack cocaine.
Police report that they were able to wrestle the cocaine away from the woman and prevent her from swallowing too much of the drug.
Officials discovered that Blank was wanted for a probation violation and for theft by receiving.
In addition to the other crimes, Blank was booked on possession of cocaine.
