Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, TN (AP) - The Tennessee Highway Patrol says it arrested a Georgia woman on charges of possession of crystal methamphetamine during a traffic stop in Coffee County.

Highway patrol officials say Trooper Jeremy Miller stopped a Honda Accord for speeding on Interstate 24 westbound on Wednesday. Officials say the driver, identified as 27-year-old Ashton Jones of Atlanta, said she was driving from Atlanta to Louisville, Kentucky.

The trooper called a K-9 unit for help. A drug detection dog named "Dolce" gave a positive alert to drugs in the car.

Officials said troopers found about 1 ½ pounds of crystal meth in a box of diapers in the back seat.

Jones was charged with drug possession with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia and speeding. She was taken to the Coffee County Jail.
