A Natrona County Woman faces drug charges, after police say that she attempted to conceal drugs and paraphernalia in her clothing.

According to a police arrest affidavit, 26 year old Anna Hodson was the passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over by police on the afternoon of July 3rd, for having a severely cracked windshield.

Officers eventually made contact with the driver, who police say appeared to have injuries on his face, consistent with being in a fight. The driver said that he had picked up Hodsen and was attacked by another driver. It was alleged that the other driver had thrown a crowbar at the windshield. The driver of the damaged vehicle could not give a reason as to why the crowbar was thrown at the vehicle.

Police also interviewed Hodson, noting in the police paperwork that Hodson’s behavior was strange, and she was unable to sit still. Officers recognized the behavior as being consistent with someone who is under the influence of methamphetamine. Police also said that Hodson was continually adjusting the pair of shorts she was wearing.

Hodson initially claimed that an ex-boyfriend was the male that had thrown the crowbar. Hodson declined to give the full name of the suspect, saying that she did not want to be a snitch. At one point officers note that Hodson seemed to be talking to the suspect on the phone, but still declined to fully identify the man or give officers his phone number.

Officers then report that the driver of the damaged vehicle became uncooperative and declined to report the property damage at the time.

During investigation, officers say that Hodson stepped out and away from the damaged vehicle to speak to officers. Police say that while walking, Hodson’s shirt adjusted over her waistline, and the orange cap of a syringe was visible to police. When officers grabbed Hodson, a silver pipe reportedly fell out of the leg of her shorts.

Hodson claimed that she was attempting to get away from the man who would eventually throw the crowbar. Hodson also admitted to using the silver pipe to smoke spice, and used the syringe to inject prescription medication.

Officers too Hodson into custody and booked her on recommended charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance- Methamphetamine, and for a previous Probation and Parole Hold.

Officers note that the substance in the syringe tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine.

All of those cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filings from the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office.
