A Rockwood woman arrested at Walmart last month had more than 100 prescription pills in her purse, according to police.

Jessica Faith Martin, 27, was charged with manufacture, sell or delivery of a controlled substance, possession without a prescription, theft of property and criminal trespassing.

According to the arrest warrant, police were dispatched to Walmart on Aug. 14 regarding shoplifting.

During a search of Martin’s car, the officer reported finding two plastic bags with five different types of pills in Martin’s purse, which was in the trunk of the car.

“I identified and counted the pills I found in Mrs. Martin’s purse as 29 Clonazepam 1 MG, 17 Diazepam 2 MG, 54 Alprazolam .25 MG, six Adderall XR 30 MG and six Suboxone,” the warrant said.

A woman who was with Martin, Angela Jones, also had her purse searched.

The warrant said Jones’ purse contained seven Clonazepam pills and nine Diazepam pills.

Jones was charged with possession. She was also cited for theft of property.
