Joanne Plessinger Hieger, 42, and Shadrick Lavane Norton, 35, both of Monticello, were arrested on Tuesday, June 18 by Jefferson County Sheriff's Office (JCSO) Investigator Burrus on drug and drug paraphernalia charges.
On June 18, at 1:28 p.m., Cpl. Adamczyk and JCSO investigators were dispatched to the scene of a fight.
Jefferson County 911 dispatch informed deputies that an anonymous caller, had relayed that two individuals had been involved in a fight and were currently leaving; the caller also described the vehicle the two subjects were driving.
Cpl. Adamczyk conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and made contact with the driver, who was identified as Hieger, while Inv. Burrus made contact with the vehicle's passenger, identified as Norton.
While speaking with Hieger, Cpl. Adamczyk noticed that Hieger was displaying physical signs of nervousness, such as rapid breathing and sweaty palms.
Based on her disposition, Cpl. Burrus believed Hieger was attempting to conceal something and asked Hieger to exit the vehicle.
Once she had exited the car, Hieger was asked if she had illegal contraband in her vehicle or on her person.
At that point, Hieger also produced a piece of copper pipe from her back pocket and informed deputies that Norton had cocaine in his pocket.
The make-shift pipe was field tested and yielded a positive result for the presence of cocaine.
While Cpl. Adamczyk spoke with Hieger, Inv. Burrus looked into Hieger's accusations against Norton; while he did not find any cocaine on Norton's person, Inv. Burrus did uncover cocaine in an orange pill bottle that had been stowed under the seat where Norton was sitting.
The cocaine was weighed and amounted to approximately 0.4 grams.
Hieger was arrested on charges of possessing a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia and was also cited for driving while having a driver's license that was expired for over six months.
Norton was placed under arrest for the charges of possession of a controlled substance (cocaine).
Both subjects were transported to the Jefferson County Jail.
