SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Sioux Falls woman was arrested on drug charges after she reached in her purse to take out an ID and a police officer noticed a syringe in the purse.

The Sioux Falls Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/29M5WsT) that officers were interviewing 43-year-old Patricia Kant after responding to a report about an open burn in the neighborhood. Kant’s purse was searched after police say she began acting suspiciously.

Authorities say the syringe tested positive for methamphetamine residue.

Kant is charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. It’s not clear if she has an attorney.
