CHAMBERLAIN — A Chamberlain woman was charged with four felonies after allegedly being caught with methamphetamine during a traffic stop.

On Jan. 29, Chamberlain police conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle, and the driver, Jessilynn Drapeau-Eagle, acted "erratic" while talking to police, leading officers to believe she was under the influence of drugs, according to court documents.

Officers searched Drapeau-Eagle's vehicle and found a needle containing methamphetamine in the glove box, and Drapeau-Eagle allegedly admitted to taking prescription pills that did not belong to her. Her urine tested positive for methamphetamine, according to court documents.

Drapeau-Eagle, 34, was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance and two counts of unauthorized ingestion of a controlled substance, all Class 5 felonies, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine for each count.
