Erica Stillwell

Police found several syringes in a Broadmoor Drive woman's purse Monday after she was charged with giving false information to law enforcement, according to a Columbus Police report.

Backup officers were called to search Erica Stillwell, 20, at about 4 p.m., while she was being booked for unspecified false information to police. During the search, she told police she had several syringes in her purse. One contained a red substance, which was later determined to be a mixture of Stillwell's blood and Dilaudid, a strong pain killer.

Stillwell denied possession of any other illegal substances, but officers later found Xanax and Ritalin pills in her bra, according to the report.

Stillwell was charged with crossing guardlines, two counts of possession of Schedule II drugs, possession of Schedule IV drugs and possession of a drug related object. She was booked into Muscogee County Jail.
