A 36-year-old woman was charged with methamphetamine possession Thursday after she was found asleep in her car outside Circle K, according to a Columbus police report.

An officer had to shout and shake Ashlee Whearley by the shoulder to rouse her after he found her asleep in the driver's seat outside the 12th Avenue gas station around 12:10 a.m.

Whearley told police that she was at the location because her friend lived next door and she was waiting for him to come home. The officer noticed she appeared nervous and asked to search her vehicle. He located 0.5 grams of methamphetamine in a small plastic bag in the center console.

Whearley was transported to the Muscogee County Jail.
