A Select Inn resident on South Church Street was arrested by Murfreesboro Police for manufacturing, delivery of or sell of drugs on Tuesday morning around 3. When offices showed up they made contact with Shirley Lewis, who allowed police to search her room.
Police found two syringes, a ball of cotton with residue on it, a cut straw and an empty prescription bottle of Oxycodone that had been filled on November 4th. The label showed that on the 4th, the bottle contained 75 pain pills, all of which were gone when police found it.
When police asked to search the 34 year old woman's phone, she allowed for it. Text messages showed that she may have been selling Oxycodone pills for about $30 each.
To make matters worse, the Select Inn is within 1,000 feet of a special education school called Genesis Rutherford Academy. The courts can pursue further charges against Lewis due to the proximity of the school if she is found guilty of selling pain pills out of the room.
Lewis was booked under a $14,000 bond and will appear in court on January 18, 2018.
