Police: Woman smoked meth, was about to smoke pot

DERRY TWP. — A Bloomsburg woman was sitting in her car smoking methamphetamine at a farmer’s field entrance when a state trooper pulled up, according to police.

Lori Ann Teitsworth, 39, told the officer she was going to smoke marijuana but hadn’t before he arrived at 11:55 a.m. June 9 at the field entrance on the west side of East Diehl Road, near Woodside Road, in Derry Township.

As he approached the green Ford Taurus, Teitsworth appeared to be leaning over toward the passenger seat, attempting to hide items, according to the charges. As she rolled down the driver’s side window, he detected an odor of burnt marijuana coming from the vehicle.

After running her information through the police computer, he re-approached with her starting the vehicle and putting the air conditioning on high, thus allowing air fresheners to be activated. Tpr. Joshua Kendrick asked her to turn off the car and step outside.

As she got out, she appeared jittery, moving around a lot and unable to stand still, the officer said.

After she allowed the officer to search the car, he found an orange pill, a round white pill, an oval white pill, a green round pill, green vegetable matter, a green pipe, a blue pipe, a metal cigarette smoking device and aluminum foil with burnt methamphetamine residue.

Teitsworth told the officer she smoked marijuana earlier in the morning along with some of the methamphetamine.

She told the trooper she was smoking the rest of the methamphetamine when he pulled in behind her.

A blood test showed Teitsworth with levels of pseudoephedrine, amphetamine, methamphetamine, Delta-9 THC and Delta-9 carboxy THC.

Kendrick charged her with possessing a controlled substance, possessing a small amount of marijuana, possessing drug paraphernalia, two counts of driving while under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances and careless driving.
