Officials arrest area woman again

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

A Brazil woman arrested in July on an arrest warrant and other drug-related charges was arrested again this past weekend.

On Saturday afternoon, Clay County Sheriff's Deputy James Switzer performed a traffic stop on State Road 340 in an area near County Road 500 West when he apparently spotted a female erratically driving a "scooter."

Switzer arrested the driver of the vehicle and booked her on two preliminary misdemeanor charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and possession of paraphernalia and two felony charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana.

The woman, Anna Eldridge, 41, was arrested by the same officer in July.

On July 28, Switzer had performed another traffic stop on Eldridge, during which she was arrested on an outstanding arrest warrant for failure to appear in small claims court and additional charges of a class D felony possession of methamphetamine and a class A misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia.

Transported to the Clay County Justice Center and booked with an initial $7,000 cash bond with no 10 percent allowed, Eldridge appeared in Clay Circuit Court for a bond reduction hearing on Aug. 19. Judge Joseph Trout ordered the bond to remain at the same amount but allowed Eldridge to bond out for 10 percent ($700) with the understanding that she obey all laws and appear for further court proceedings on Sept. 22 at 9 a.m.

According to jail officials, Eldridge is now currently in jail awaiting formal arraignment on the new charges with a $14,000 cash bond while her case is reviewed by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office.
