A Perryville woman was charged with three drug-related offenses and seven traffic violations, and was arrested Monday morning after driving erratically in Finksburg, according to court documents.
In addition to three charges for possessing heroin and drug paraphernalia, Hailey Lynn Moyer, 27, was charged with attempting to drive a vehicle while impaired by drugs; negligent driving; reckless driving; failing to obey traffic signals; failing to control the speed of her vehicle; and failing to locate and notify the owner of property damaged in an accident.
At about 9:25 a.m. Monday, the Maryland State Police Westminster Barrack received two 911 calls about a silver Ford station wagon that was driving erratically while traveling east on Md. 140 near Suffolk Road, according to charging documents. Callers reported the driver nearly rear-ended a truck and trailer, and side-swiped a guardrail before driving into the parking lot of a shopping center at 3000 Gamber Road in Finksburg several miles away, according to charging documents.
The officer who responded found Moyer standing outside her car in the parking lot, charging documents said. She told the officer she “dozed off” when she side-swiped the guardrail.
The trooper reported Moyer appeared drowsy and had slurred speech. The trooper applied a field sobriety test and concluded Moyer was driving while impaired, then arrested her at 9:56 a.m., according to charging documents.0
During a search of her vehicle, police found four glass devices used for smoking crack cocaine with burnt residue inside and a copper scrub pad; two plastic baggies containing trace amounts of crack cocaine; and a plastic vial containing heroin, according to charging documents.
Moyer passed alcohol breath tests before and after she was arrested, but she showed signs consistent with opioid use at the Westminster state police barrack, according to charging documents. She later admitted to using crack cocaine and heroin, according to charging documents.
She was then taken to Carroll Hospital for an evaluation before being transported to the Carroll County Detention Center, where she remains held in default of $500 bail.
A trial is scheduled for 1:15 p.m. July 3 in District Court of Maryland for Carroll County.
