A local woman was arrested after police discovered she was carrying methamphetamine and numerous prescription drugs.

Rena Kelley, 46, 808 E. Bloomington St., was the passenger of a vehicle stopped for having incorrect plates. Officers noticed her allegedly making movements as if putting something under her seat, reports said.

According to a complaint, Iowa City police searched Kelley’s purse and reportedly found numerous prescription pills, aluminum foil packets of methamphetamine, foils containing burnt meth, and hollow pens used to smoke meth.

The man driving the vehicle, 46-year-old Edward Neuzil, allegedly had a bottle of meth in his pocket and burnt aluminum foil packets containing meth residue in his wallet.

Kelley was charged with four accounts of possession prescription drugs, as well as one account of second-offense possession of a controlled substance.

Kelley was convicted in 2006 for cocaine possession.
