Flint woman arrested, caught hiding drugs in deputy's patrol vehicle


A Flint woman faces charges in Henderson County for the possession of an alleged controlled substance and a dangerous drug.

Rachel Allison Rush, 33, was stopped for a traffic violation by Henderson County deputies about 10 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 315 and County Road 4201.

Rush was arrested after deputies conducted a search of her vehicle and found a small amount of illegal drugs, pills and needles. 

Deputies said they saw her on the car’s camera system removing a concealed item from her clothing and placing it between the seats when they were taking her to the jail.

The deputies recovered a clear plastic baggie containing approximately 9 grams of suspected methamphetamine when they arrived at the Henderson County Detention Center in Athens, according to Henderson County officials. 

Rush was booked into the Henderson County Jail for the alleged possession of at least 4 grams but under 200 grams of a controlled substance in penalty group 1, a second-degree felony, and for possession of a dangerous drug. She was held on a $16,500 bond, according to Henderson County judicial records.
