JONESVILLE — Jonesville Police charged a Wilkesboro woman Dec. 3 after a registration check led to oxycodone being discovered in her pocketbook.


A Jonesville officer was patrolling the town when he observed Melissa Kaye Anderson, 34, heading west on Highway 67, according to the incident report.


According to the report, the officer noticed that Anderson’s registration was not properly attached and stopped her vehicle.


When the officer ran Anderson’s registration, he found it to be revoked for an insurance violation. The officer then ran Anderson’s drivers license and there had been an order for her arrest from Wilkes County.


A second officer arrived at the scene and asked Anderson for permission to search the vehicle she was driving and her purse.


According to the incident report, Anderson gave permission, and the second officer found a pill bottle with a cut-off drinking straw inside and four oxycodone pills.


Anderson admitted to snorting the pills “from time to time,” according to the report.


Police also found a prescription in the purse with Anderson’s name on it for Roxicodone. The prescription was made out for 120 pills and had been filled the day before the police found it. Reportedly, there were 73 pills left in the bottle.


Anderson told police she had gotten lost after going to Elkin’s Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital in reference to her aunt, according to the report.


Police found the pills had been prescribed to Anderson by Revival pain clinic in Elkin, according to the report.


Anderson was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, displaying revoked plates, and no insurance, all misdemeanor charges.


She was listed as confined in “Yadkin,” with no details as to her trial or bond situation.
