Monroe Woman Busted for Hiding Meth in Container Labeled ‘Dope’

A Louisiana woman is behind bars on a felony drug possession charge after police discovered her methamphetamine stash in a small plastic container that was helpfully labeled “Dope.”

Cops responded Saturday night to a West Monroe residence after an unidentified complainant reported finding “suspected narcotics” inside the apartment, which is home to Candyce Neel, 41.

According to a probable cause affidavit, through “further investigation,” an officer found the “Dope” container with “suspected methamphetamine inside.”

Neel, cops say, left the apartment “prior to deputies speaking with her.” However, she was later arrested after being found hiding behind the residence. After being read her rights, Neel reportedly “admitted ownership of the suspected narcotics.”

Seen at right, Neel was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and booked into the local jail, where she is being held on $3000 bond.

Neel’s rap sheet includes prior collars for possession of stolen goods, driving without a license, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, and failure to appear in court.
