OPELOUSAS, La. (AP) - Bringing a bag of marijuana to a police station is not a smart idea.
The Daily World reports an Opelousas woman has been arrested and booked with possession of marijuana.
Police Chief Perry Gallow says 31-year-old Jernita Williams went to the station about 4:30 p.m. Monday to file a complaint against an individual.
But after she left, Gallow said officers noticed a small bag of marijuana on the floor near the chair where Williams had been sitting.
Gallow says officers reviewed video from security cameras and it was clear that the marijuana had fallen from Williams' clothing.
He said Williams was contacted Tuesday and was asked to return to the office, where she was booked for possession of marijuana.
It could not be determined if Williamson has an attorney.
