Greensburg women arrested on multiple drug charges

first_imgGREENSBURG, Ind. — Two Greensburg women were arrested on multiple drug-related charges.According to police, during a patrol officers noticed a car with its reverse lights on and parked improperly. In the vehicle was Patricia Vanbuskirk, 41, who told the officer she was waiting on a friend. The officer smelled burnt marijuana coming from the vehicle.Vanbuskirk’s friend, Kristina Kramer, 39, came to the car, and the officer again smelled a strong odor of marijuana. When Kramer got in the vehicle, the officer saw a small cut red straw, known to be used for ingesting a controlled substance through the nose. The officer asked for permission to search the vehicle and two purses. Police say both women gave consent.During the search, the officer noticed a white powder substance on a compact mirror. The officer also found a prescription bottle not prescribed for either of the women, that contained several individually wrapped controlled substances, a large bag of what the officer believed to be marijuana, and several baggies with white crystal like substances which all tested positive for methamphetamine.Kramer and Vanbuskirk were arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana, and Kramer also faces a charge of visiting a common nuisance.last_img read more
