A Brazil woman faces preliminary drug charges after state police say they found methamphetamine, prescription pills and items used in the potential sale of illicit drugs in her possession on Tuesday.

Terry Lynne Coffin, 50, was taken to the Clay County Jail Tuesday morning on preliminary charges of possession of meth, possession of a scheduled IV controlled substance, maintaining a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia.

The Indiana State Police’s Meth Suppression Unit began its investigation at 502 S. Alabama St., Brazil, around 9 a.m., according to an ISP Putnamville District news release.

That release states that during the investigation, troopers located approximately 1 gram of suspected meth, about 30 illicit prescription pills, assorted illicit drug-smoking devices, and numerous items associated with the measuring, grinding, and potential sale of illicit drugs.

The Brazil Police Department assisted the ISP.

  • Are you saying they should've said, "Well, Terry, since you're just an average user, we'll let you go."? Any dent they can make to eradicate this problem they should do. One more user incarcerated is one less customer for the dealer.
