Methamphetamine found "on woman" while being booked into jail

Scotts Bluff County Court documents say corrections officers found methamphetamine wrapped in seven individual bags on a woman while booking her into the jail Monday night on outstanding warrants.

The documents say the four grams of methamphetamine were found in the woman's "groin area" during a strip search after the arresting Scottsbluff Police officer noticed that Katrina Ramos had been "acting nervous" and was "digging in the rear of her pants." He had also seized a digital scale and glass pipe from his vehicle and the one Ramos was in while making the arrest.

The documents say Ramos was arrested just before midnight Monday night when the officer identified her as she was getting out of a vehicle and knew she had outstanding warrants for marijuana possession and child neglect.

She is also being held now on possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and providing false information after giving the officer another name when he asked for identification.
