By The Staff

A 32-year-old Chiefland woman was arrested Oct. 29 after Chiefland Police Officer Calvin Hardge discovered drugs in a car, according to records.

Melissa Hamil was in a car driven by Shanda Lamb-Makatura, 31, of Old Town when Hardge saw it leave "a known drug area," in the 200 block of Southwest Fourth Avenue.

The driver made turns without signaling and she turned in an opposite direction from the way she signaled. Hardge pulled over the driver, whose license was not valid, the officer noted in his report.

She gave consent for him to search. He found cocaine, Xanax prescription pills and drug paraphernalia. Hamil was arrested for possession of cocaine, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Other people who were recently arrested by the Chiefland Police Department were:

* Joseph Nelson, 21, of Archer for retail theft

* James Rome, 68, of Chiefland for domestic battery and resisting arrest without violence.

* Tommie Neal, 44, of Bronson for failure to appear in court on a worthless check charge.

* Reggie Stacy, 30, of Bronson for battery
