Macomb woman arrested on drug charges

Penny Self

A Macomb woman is behind bars after police say they found 2.8 grams of crack cocaine hidden on her body.

Penny Self, 51, was stopped Monday by a night patrol deputy on East Grant Street in Macomb. The deputy said her driving was erratic.

During the stop, the deputy said she was behaving odd so a drug sniffing dog was brought in to examine her vehicle.

After a positive hit from the dog, Self admitted to having the drug on her, according to the McDonough County Sheriff's Office.

She's charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of cannabis under 2.5 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia.
