Two arrested on drug charges

Two women were arrested in unrelated drug cases in Washington County over the past few days.

Teresa Ann Barrentine

On November 22, at approximately 2 am, a Washington County Sheriff’s deputy responded to a physical disturbance call on Lindsay Lane in Chipley.  While speaking with the alleged victim, who was identified as 43-year-old Teresa Ann Barrentine, the deputy was taken to a bedroom where the incident had occurred.  Once in the bedroom, the deputy noticed a bowl on the dresser that contained methamphetamine.

Deputies were then granted consent to search the area and located a hypodermic needle and a spoon that tested positive for methamphetamine in a dresser drawer.

Barrentine was arrested and booked into the Washington County Jail on the charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Kimbre Riser

On November 26, a WCSO deputy conducted a traffic stop just after 8 pm on Pate Pond Road, for speeding.  The driver of the vehicle, identified as Kimbre Riser, 22, of Panama City, was determined to have a suspended drivers license at the time of the stop.  The deputy became concerned after the driver exhibited signs of being under the influence of a controlled substance.

A search of the vehicle resulted in oxycodone, a controlled substance prescription medication, being located in an Advil bottle.

Riser was arrested and booked into the Washington County Jail on the charge of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
