A car parked illegally in a handicapped parking spot outside of a motel has led to the arrest of an Ooltewah woman.
Antoinette Clair Trosclair, 20, of a State Street address in Ooltewah, was charged Saturday with Possession of Cocaine for Resale and Possession of Marijuana. It is unclear when she is scheduled to appear in municipal court.
According to an affidavit of complaint, police conducted a “knock and talk” at room 144 of the Motel 6 on Ringgold Road on Saturday. The car belonging to the registered guest’s room had been parked illegally in a handicapped parking spot without an appropriate placard. The report states that police had knowledge that the registered guest had been involved in a narcotics arrest by Chattanooga Police Department in which narcotics were seized.
When the person opened the door police could smell the odor of marijuana coming from inside the room. The report states that police received permission to search the room and saw a digital scale and two small baggies on the nightstand.
As police were searching the room, Trosclair admitted to one officer that she had drugs in her purse. Inside the purse on top police found 6.5 grams of marijuana. In addition, officers found three bags of a white powder substance in the woman’s purse. According to the report, Trosclair told police the white powder (5.4 grams) was in fact cocaine and the drugs belonged to her.
