Chief Deputy Mike Lambert with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office said Sherrie Marie Jordan is charged with possession of a controlled substance following the incident.

“Deputies executed a traffic stop on a vehicle without a tag traveling on Martin Circle,” Lambert said. “When the deputy approached the vehicle he noticed the passenger was acting very suspicious.

“The owner of the vehicle consented to a search, as did Ms. Jordan,” he said. “When the deputy searched Ms. Jordan’s purse, he located meth inside a coffee filter in her purse.”

Jordan was booked into the Escambia County Detention Center and later released on a $5,000 bond.
