A re­port­edly home­less woman was ar­rested Mon­day morn­ing af­ter Hot Springs po­lice al­legedly lo­cated drugs and sev­eral smok­ing pipes inside her ve­hi­cle.

Katie Lynn Parker, 32, who lists no per­ma­nent ad­dress, was taken into cus­tody in the 100 block of Omega

Street at around

11:30 a.m. and charged with felony counts of pos­ses­sion of meth with pur­pose to de­liver, pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia, each pun­ish­able by up to 20 years in prison, pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia, pun­ish­able by up to six years, and a mis­de­meanor count of pos­ses­sion of mar­i­juana with pur­pose to de­liver.

Parker, who also had a war­rant for con­tempt of court, re­mained in cus­tody Tues­day in lieu of $16,000 bond, and is set to ap­pear today in Gar­land County District Court.

Ac­cord­ing to the prob­a­ble cause af­fi­davit, Of­fi­cer Billy Perkins re­sponded to the 100 block of Omega in ref­er­ence to two peo­ple sit­ting in a car, smok­ing some­thing out of a glass pipe. Upon his ar­rival he made con­tact with the driver, later iden­ti­fied as Parker, and an­other fe­male pas­sen­ger who were sit­ting in a parked silver Saturn.

While he was stand­ing at the driver’s side door, Parker was re­port­edly mak­ing a call to an un­known per­son, ask­ing them to come get the car be­cause she had war­rants. Her war­rant was con­firmed, and she was taken into cus­tody. The other oc­cu­pant of the ve­hi­cle was re­port­edly re­leased from the scene.

Dur­ing a search Perkins al­legedly lo­cated a dig­i­tal scale, small me­tal pipe and a bro­ken sy­ringe inside Parker’s coat pock­ets. Two small bag­gies con­tain­ing about 2.7 grams of sus­pected meth and an­other bag­gie con­tain­ing around 4 grams of sus­pected mar­i­juana were re­port­edly lo­cated inside the ve­hi­cle.

Inside the cen­ter con­sole, he al­legedly found a glass light bulb pipe and a me­tal con­tainer with var­i­ous items inside in­clud­ing two pipes and a bro­ken light bulb coated with meth residue. A sec­ond set of scales was re­port­edly found in the front seat.

While trans­port­ing Parker to the de­ten­tion cen­ter, she spon­ta­neously stated the scales be­longed to her.

• A Hot Springs woman was ar­rested early Sun­day fol­low­ing an al­ter­ca­tion where she al­legedly punched her grand­mother in the eye.

Pey­ton Re­nee Wells, 20, of 160 Cooper St., was taken into cus­tody at her home at around 3 a.m. and charged with felony sec­ond-de­gree bat­tery, pun­ish­able by up to 10 years in prison.

She re­mained in cus­tody as of Tues­day in lieu of a zero bond, and ap­peared via video Mon­day morn­ing in district court where she pleaded not guilty to the charge. A felony re­view hear­ing is set for Dec. 18 to de­ter­mine if the charge will be bound over to Gar­land County Cir­cuit Court.

Ac­cord­ing to the prob­a­ble cause af­fi­davit, the com­plainant stated her grand­daugh­ter, iden­ti­fied as Wells, had struck her in the face dur­ing an ar­gu­ment. She said she came home from a lo­cal bar around 2:15 a.m. and went back to Wells’ bed­room to speak with her.

Wells’ grand­mother re­port­edly asked for the keys to her car, Wells re­fused and an ar­gu­ment over money en­sued. Dur­ing the ar­gu­ment, Wells al­legedly punched her grand­mother in the right eye, caus­ing a cut above the eye. A wit­ness re­port­edly cor­rob­o­rated the grand­mother’s ver­sion of events and Wells was ar­rested.
