A York woman was jailed on drug charges after police found three types of narcotics and more than 50 grams of marijuana in her purse, according to Rock Hill Police.

Angela Harris, 34, was charged with two counts of possession of a schedule IV controlled substance, possession of a schedule V controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute a schedule II controlled drug and possession with intent to distribute marijuana, according to a police report. She was placed in the Rock Hill city jail, where she remained Tuesday under $15,000 bond, according to jail records.

An officer pulled over a Nissan Sentra on McDow Drive about 8:30 p.m. Monday for a broken tag light, according to the report. The officer noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the car as he approached, and saw Harris in the passenger seat spraying a scented air freshener in the car.

Dispatch told the officer the driver’s license had been suspended, police said. Harris, who was in the passenger seat, was asked to step out of the car. When asked if she had anything illegal, she told the officer she had some pills and marijuana.

Harris had oxycodone, tramadol and lyrica pills and 53 grams of marijuana in four separate bags inside her purse, along with scales, police said. She was taken into custody.

Harris’ 13-year-old son, who was in the car, was released to her girlfriend, who was driving, the report states. The driver was cited for driving under suspension.
