Two women are facing drug related charges in separate cases by the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department

30 year old Amy Vanderpool of Haley Road, Smithville was charged Wednesday with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Sheriff Patrick Ray says Vanderpool was at a market in Smithville when a deputy spotted her. The officer had knowledge of a violation of probation on Vanderpool and when he searched her pocketbook, the officer found three hypodermic needles and two straws. Vanderpool's bond was set a $1,000 and her court date is May 15th.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, 35 year old Kimberly Shawn Reed of Short Street, Smithville was stopped by a county deputy at the intersection of College Street and Highway 70 in Dowelltown. The officer received consent to search and Reed was found to have in her possession a pill crusher containing one pill believed to be Hydocodone and 2 ½ pills believed to be Soma.

Reed was charged with possession of a Schedule IV Drug (Soma), Possession of a Schedule III Drug (Hydrocodone), and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (Pill Crusher). Reed's bond was set a $4,000 and her court date is May 15th.
