Lake County woman arrested for coming to court with contraband in bra

A Lucerne woman was arrested Tuesday after showing up for a court appearance with methamphetamine and a pipe used for smoking the drug hidden in her bra, officials said.

Sahra Arline Wilcoxson, 24, was in Lake County Superior Court for prior felony drug charges when she was arrested on new drug charges and for violating probation, according to the Lake County Sheriff's Office.

Probation officials uncovered the drugs after taking her into the sheriff's substation adjacent to the court for a routine probation compliance check.

Wilcoxson informed them she would not pass a drug test and admitted she had methamphetamine and a meth pipe concealed in her bra, officials said.

She possessed a quarter of an ounce of methamphetamine, officials said.

Wilcoxson was booked into the Lake County jail on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance and narcotics paraphernalia and for probation violation.
