A Roswell woman was arrested, Friday, as she assisted youth toilet papering trees. Officers were dispatched to the area of Mission Arch and Elm Streets where they saw a vehicle with several young people hanging onto its sides.
When the officers located the vehicle, they discovered some 10 to 15 juveniles, either in or riding on the outside of it. Officials learned that the juveniles were hanging toilet paper outside various residences in the neighborhood.
The woman was identified as Andrea Morales, 31. She was arrested and charged with reckless driving. In a subsequent search of her vehicle, officers found methamphetamines inside Morales’ purse. She was then charged with possession of a controlled substance.
Officers transported Morales to the Chaves County Detention Center. Three of the juveniles involved were arrested and charged with resisting, evading and obstructing an officer.
