A burglar alarm sounding in the middle of the day at a house led Orange police to arrest a Hamshire woman wanted on a parole violation warrant. In addition, she had marijuana, methamphetamine and dilaudid hidden in her bra. She also faces a charge of failure to identify after giving a false first name.
Officer P. McDonald reported he went to a house in the 3700 block of Edgemont Drive at 11 a.m. because of the residential alarm. When he arrived, he saw two women in the yard.
One woman identified herself while the other gave a first name that she had a hard time spelling. She also said she did not have an official identification card. McDonald said the woman gave the first name more than four times before she gave her real name and showed an ID.
He reported she had a warrant from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for a parole violation. The woman then told the officer she had drugs in her bra.
The woman was arrested and taken to the Orange County Jail. There, women corrections officers found drugs in her bra.
McDonald said the property owner did not want to pursue charges. However, Amanda Rene Robinson of Hamshire faces local charges of possession of a controlled substance and is being held on the warrant.
