APD: Pregnant woman went on drug binge near Alexandria waterfront after argument

A 31-year-old Prince William County woman, who claimed to be five months pregnant, was arrested last month for drug possession in Old Town.

At around 10:40 p.m. on (Friday) March 25, the woman was parked with a friend in a silver Kia in the unit block of Oronoco Street, which is near Founders Park in Old Town. The Kia had temporary registration plates from Texas, and the woman admitted to an Alexandria Police officer that she’d been drinking and was 20 weeks pregnant, according to a search warrant affidavit.

The driver was told that her car was going to be impounded since it was unregistered, and she and her friend were asked to get out of the car.

Police found MDMA/ecstasy in powder form inside the car, and when asked about it the suspect said it was cigarette ash mixed with “Molly.” The driver told police that she had recently ingested cocaine, and met up with an old friend from high school in a parking lot in the city to pick up the MDMA because she needed something to relax her that was stronger than alcohol, according to a search warrant.

A field test of the drug confirmed that it was MDMA.

“(The suspect) stated she had previously used cocaine before and needed something stronger since the father of her unborn child told her that he didn’t want her to have the baby,” police said in the warrant. “(The suspect) states that this was her second pregnancy, and she had a miscarriage on her first child a few years ago.”

The driver was charged with possession of Schedule I/II drugs, and was released from the Alexandria jail shortly after her arrest on a $1,000 unsecured bond. She goes to court for the offense on June 14. Her passenger was not charged.
