A Spokane woman was arrested in Post Falls early Saturday morning after she was allegedly found with a large amount of methamphetamine.

Deputies pulled over a car driven by Ashley M. Allen, 25, near Pleasant View Road and Seltice Way just before 5 a.m. and saw her hiding drug paraphernalia as they approached the car, according to a Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office news release. They also reportedly discovered methamphetamine packaged for sale.

Allen was being booked into the Kootenai County Jail on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia when booking officers found more drugs hidden on her person, the news release said. Allen is now facing additional charges of concealing evidence and introducing contraband into a jail.

Allen has 18 previous arrests in Kootenai County for crimes including burglary, theft, trafficking in methamphetamine and probation violations.
