Woman busted smuggling meth in her hair after disguising bag as a bow

Drugs 07/10/2019

Last month, US police officer Kenneth Looney spotted a car driving though Flippin, Arkansas with an expired registration. The driver - Jessica Bernice Kropp - eventually pulled over and when asked for her licence told Looney it was expired.

Kropp then revealed she didn't have insurance and didn't know where the registration was because she was borrowing the car.

After doing a little more research, Looney found out Kropp had five valid warrants out for her arrest according to the Baxter Bulletin.

Looney asked Kropp to step out of her car to place her under arrest when he noticed a bow in her hair.

The bow was in fact a small zip-locked bag  with a rubber band over it containing a white substance suspected to be methamphetamine.

'I said, ‘Are you serious?’ She said, ‘What?’ I said, ‘You have a bow in your hair made from a bag of meth’. She said, ‘[expletive deleted], I didn’t know that was there, someone else put that there and I didn’t know what it was’.' Looney said.

Later searching her purse, Looney apparently found ‘multiple bags’ of meth, as well as drug paraphernalia.

Kropp was arrested on several possession-related charges and subsequently taken to Marion County jail.
