An investigation by Providence Police led to a local woman being arrested on meth trafficking charges last Tuesday morning.

According to a release issued by the PPD, chief Todd Jones responded to an apartment on Gulf Street in regards to information he’d received about possible meth trafficking from that location.

The report states that inside the apartment, Jones encountered Amy Edwards, 42 of Providence, and her five-year-old daughter. Edwards reported that she did occasionally use methamphetamine, and revealed drug paraphernalia to officers.

Police say that a search of the residence revealed a seven-day pill counter containing meth that was individually packaged and priced for resale, as well as a syringe and a glass meth pipe.

Edwards then admitted to police that she had been trafficking in meth for around two months.

She was arrested and charged with trafficking in meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.

DCBS released the child into the custody of family members but are conducting an ongoing investigation.
