The Lawrence County Sheriff's office arrested a woman for possession of a controlled substance.

According to the officials, agents observed a suspicious car on County Road 257.  Agents saw the car making frequent stops at a very slow speed. After conducting a traffic stop, agents obtained consent to search the car. They found a wallet with two zip-lock bags containing methamphetamine.

Donia Willingham of Tuscumbia was arrested and charged with felony drug charges.
