Iowa City, IA — Despite what others may say, I derive no pleasure from kicking someone when they’re down. Sometimes, as in this case, I choose to feature certain individuals purely as a public service announcement.
Sort of like Crazy Ralph, but instead of warning people away from cursed campgrounds, I’m warning them of the dangers of certain drugs. All in the hopes I can keep one person from getting busted using them in a pharmacy bathroom with their 4-year-old child present.
That’s exactly what happened to 30-year-old Tiffany Lewis the other day inside a Iowa City pharmacy. A witnesses told police that Lewis requested syringes before disappearing inside the pharmacy bathroom with her toddler for several minutes.
When she came back out, she was obviously under the influence of something and asked where she could dispose of used needles.
When police arrived on the scene and tried to question Lewis, she attempted to conceal a Crown Royal bag behind her back that was found to contain a metal spoon blackened with residue, a used needle and a substance believed to be heroin.
Police asked Lewis what the substance was, but she wasn’t really sure. She told them it was either “heroin or methamphetamine, she wasn’t sure which.” Lewis was arrested on charges of child endangerment without injury and felony possession of a controlled substance. She was placed in jail on a $7,000 cash-only bond, where she seems to be enjoying herself.Tags: Child Endangerment, Crime, Drugs, heroin, Iowa, meth, pharmacy, Tiffany Lewis
