Officers then asked to search her vehicle after she told police she did not have anything illegal inside, according to the report.

Police said they found a small plastic bag with a clear crystal-like powder in her wallet and used a field test, identifying the powder as methamphetamine, or crystal meth.

Inside Methvin's purse were multiple unused, small plastic bags in two different sizes, leading police to believe she has been selling the drug.
