TOWN OF LOCKPORT — A Niagara Falls woman jailed Monday for marijuana possession could find herself with additional drug charges because of what corrections officers found once she got to the Niagara County Jail.

Dierdra A. Hopkins, 48, 547 21st St., Apt. 2, was found to have a bag of marijuana in her purse after the vehicle she was a passenger in was stopped for a traffic infraction.

"Patrol took Hopkins into custody and looked further in the purse," the report said. "Patrol located a total of three plastic bags, each bag containing suspected marijuana from the purse. Patrol also located a glass (bowl) marijuana smoking device."

Hopkins was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of marijuana and a public health law violation and taken to Niagara County Jail on $250 bail.

Shortly thereafter, patrol was called back to the Niagara County Jail where Niagara County Corrections Officers found contraband with her, the report said. Patrol was advised that Hopkins had an unknown substance found in her purse — a brown opaque "rock-like" substance.

Patrol gathered the contraband and secured it for evidence. Hopkins stated that she was not sure what the substance was, but would guess that it was purified THC. An Investigator from the Niagara County Drug Task Force was on scene to examine the suspected contraband that was found in Hopkins purse. No determination on the substance was made on scene.

All drug and drug paraphernalia were submitted to the Niagara County Forensic Laboratory for evidence and analysis. Additional charges for Hopkins are pending for the Town of Lockport, depending on the laboratory results on the suspected contraband.
