Crossville police were called to Game Stop Tuesday night for a fight between two women. Cumberland County deputies were on scene with one of the parties, who said she got into a physical altercation with 29-year-old Lindsay Lasha Lowery over a dispute surrounding a purported drug transaction in which her mother supposedly purchased meth from Lowery.
Lowery, who had scratches on her face from the altercation, claimed the other woman had confronted her, saying she owed her mother money, then scratched her face. During a consent search, Lowery told officers she had a “rig” in her pocket, meaning a syringe used to inject narcotics. She also had a second syringe and a cap containing a cotton ball and residue of Opana, which she admitted using earlier in the day.
The driver of the car in which Lowery was found was also in possession of a syringe. A search of the vehicle netted a lotion bottle containing a baggie with approximately four tenths of a gram of meth, and four Venlafaxine Hydrochloride 37.5mg capsules. Venlafaxine Hydrochloride is a non-Schedule prescription medication.
Lowery was arrested and charged with simple possession of meth. She was not charged for possession of a legend drug. The driver was released without charges of possession of drug paraphernalia.
