NEWS AND TRIBUNE CRIME BRIEFS — For June 20

Deputies finds meth, syringes, children in vehicle

Clark County Sheriff’s Department deputies pulled over a vehicle for a missing tail light about 1 a.m. Monday. 

Michelle Knight, 31, of Salem, was behind the wheel, and the officer asked for her driver’s license, “ ... however, she was nervous to the point hat she was shaking and could not retrieve it from her wallet,” according to the deputy’s report.

Deputies also spoke with Aaron Blake, 40, of Salem, who was seated in the passenger seat, and deputies also noticed he was acting nervous and would not make direct eye contact with them.

Knight’s 2-, 6- and 10-year-old children were also in the vehicle.

Deputies were then given consent to search the vehicle, and initially located in the vehicle a $1 bill with marijuana wrapped inside. Knight and Blake were asked if there were any other illegal items in the vehicle and both stated there was not.

During further search of the vehicle, deputies located in the front passenger floorboard, “ … an empty Nerds candy box that contained two baby wipes and two syringes that contained a clear liquid.”

An unzipped purse was also located in the vehicle that contained, “ ... two empty syringes, a metal smoking pipe, a glass smoking pipe, two spoons with a white residue and a Camel Snus container that contained two clear bags with a white residue inside, and two white coffee filters with a white residue on them,” according to the report.

Blake told the deputies all the items belonged to him and that one of the syringes contained only water, and the other contained a water and methamphetamine mixture. He also said the clear bags in the Camel Snus container had previously contained methamphetamine.

Knight admitted that she had smoked marijuana about an hour before the traffic stop and had snorted methamphetamine earlier in the day, according to the report.
