A Jefferson City woman was arrested Saturday for possession of illegal drugs in Moniteau County.

Sheriff's department reports show deputies were dispatched to a report of a vehicle abandoned on private property on Chapel Road outside of Jamestown.

Upon arrival, deputies located the vehicle and found two people in a nearby creek. One of the two, later identified as Tara Rapier, 30, was asked about the vehicle and said she didn't know anything about it. She reportedly said she and the other individual were dropped off by a friend at the creek.

Deputies allegedly located methamphetamine inside the vehicle and later learned that Rapier was the driver of the car and was currently on probation for a drug offense.

While being processed at the jail, staff located a clear bag containing methamphetamine that Rapier had attempted to conceal inside her person.
