Drug paraphernalia

A woman was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia, giving a false report to police and resisting arrest by engaging in passive resistance on Thursday after she ignored repeated requests to stop sleeping near the Walmart on East Huntington Drive.

When the woman was approached she gave a false name to police and began to run away, stating that she did not do anything wrong. As she was arrested, the woman tried to pull away from police.

Police searched the woman’s backpack and found burnt tinfoil and a plastic bag with meth residue.

The woman was identified as Loretta Lesko.

When police tried to arrest the man, the woman hit the officer which led to her arrest.
