She was indicted by a Henderson County grand jury after Henderson Co-unty Sheriff’s Office De-puty Brad Beddingfield responded to a call to the Taco Bell parking lot in Chandler about a woman who fell asleep behind the wheel while in the drive-through in December of last year.
Beddingfield made contact with the sole occupant of the vehicle, and after several minutes of trying to wake the woman up, was able to identify her as Ms. Boaz.
Beddingfield’s report stated Boaz appeared confused and said she had just fallen asleep behind the wheel of her vehicle because she was tired.
Beddingfield obtained consent from Boaz to search her vehicle and located more than 74 grams of methamphetamine inside.
As Beddingfield went to place Boaz into custody, he observed her drop a clear plastic baggie on the ground. Inside the baggie, the deputy found additional meth-amphetamine.
According to the information from the district attorney’s office, Beddingfield also found items commonly used in the sale of narcotics inside Boaz’ vehicle, including numerous empty clear plastic baggies and a police scanner.
Inside Boaz’ purse, Beddingfield found a plastic baggie containing marijuana.
During a search at the jail, officers found additional contraband, including a baggie containing methamphetamine.
The vehicle, which Boaz was located in, was seized by the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office and awarded to them as property that was used in the sale or manufacture of methamphetamine.
