Jennifer Glynn, 36, of Elkton, Ky., was arrested Sept. 11 after the Mitchell Police Division was dispatched to the Ramada Inn. Glynn was acting strangely, according to hotel staff, and concerning them.

Court documents state Glynn “was in obvious need of medical attention due to her strange activity (picking at the air, talking to people who did not exist and speaking unintelligibly).”

Glynn was taken to the hospital. Police got a search warrant for Glynn’s car and hotel room. They allegedly found multiple needles, both used and unused.

Glynn allegedly admitted to using methamphetamine on her trip from Idaho to Kentucky. She said she last used meth in Mitchell and pointed police to the last needle she used in a pop can in her car, court documents say. The needle allegedly tested positive for meth.

The charge carries a maximum of five years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both.
