Coquille Woman Charged With Meth Possession

Detectives with the South Coast Interagency Narcotics Team conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by 48-year-old Angelica Yarnell-Ross of Coquille. The vehicle was stopped on West 4th Street in Coquille on Thursday, June 16th. The traffic stop resulted from an incident on May 26th when Yarnell-Ross allegedly attempted to smuggle a bar of soap that was hollowed out concealing a bag of methamphetamine, into the Coos County jail.
As Yarnell-Ross was being interviewed by Detectives, police canine ‘Kara’ alerted to the presence of methamphetamine inside the vehicle. During a search, police found a bag containing what they suspected to be methamphetamine in addition to $925.00 in United States currency.
Yarnell-Ross was arrested and lodged in the Coos County jail on the charges of Supplying Contraband, Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine and Delivery of Methamphetamine. While being searched at the jail, additional methamphetamine was discovered hidden in Yarnell-Ross’s clothing.
