A woman dealing drugs from her car was caught with meth, heroin and nearly $1,500 in cash, according to Lebanon police.
Police responded to Cox Street near South 2nd Street at 4:44 p.m. Tuesday after a witness reported seeing people walking up to a Toyota Corolla, cash being exchanged and the people walking away from the car.
An officer arrived and found the Toyota with a woman inside. The woman denied dealing drugs and said she was in the area to visit a friend.
The officer asked for consent to search the vehicle and was ultimately allowed to do so, according to the Lebanon Police Department.
Investigators said the officer found 3.3 grams of pre-packaged heroin in baggies, 2.7 grams of pre-packaged methamphetamine in baggies, cut-up grocery bags for heroin balloons, several syringes with two containing an unknown clear liquid, $1,483 in cash, two notebooks containing possible drug records and multiple cell phones.
The officer confronted the woman with the evidence and police said she admitted to dealing drugs.
Arlena Arellano, 31, was arrested on charges of possession of meth and heroin, as well as delivery of meth and heroin within 1,000 feet of a school and parole violation.
