Springhill Police arrested a Haynesville woman Friday on multiple drug charges.

Phyllis Denise Pardue, 58, of Reed St., is charged with possession of Methamphetamine, possession of Marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and disturbing the peace by public intoxication.

Police Chief Will Lynd said SPD received a call regarding an intoxicated person causing a disturbance ad a convenience store on N. Arkansas St.

“Upon arrival, Ofc. Silvers made contact with employees who pointed to Pardue as the female causing the disturbance,” Lynd said. “The officer said Pardue appeared highly intoxicated, swaying heavily and speaking in an erratic manner.”

When asked if she had anything on her person, Pardue reportedly pulled 2 clear plastic bags containing suspected Methamphetamine from her right front pocket.

“She further stated she had a bag of Marijuana in her person,” Lynd said. “A detailed search of her purse revealed rolling papers.”

Pardue was transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
