According to the arrest report, Angelique Benea Clark, 30, of the 300 block of Boone Lane was arrested by Escambia County (Fla.) sheriff’s deputies for possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia after she texted a friend to ask for a ride.

It was later confirmed she was not wanted in Alabama. Deputies made contact with Clark, who was walking toward the store on Muscogee Road, near McQueen Road. Clark agreed to be searched, the report stated.
