A nurse practitioner at Floyd Medical Center – Jennifer Elyse Holdbrooks from Rome – was placed under arrest after police said they found her in possession of a large amount of meth that was intended for distribution.
Reports said that a search at her home on Greenleaf Trail led the Metro Drug Task Force to find a bag of suspected methamphetamine inside the bathroom. Officers say it appeared as though Holdbrooks had flushed the remainder of the meth down the drain.
Officers also located marijuana and a gun inside the home.
Authorities went on to state that children were present and near the drugs in the home.
Holdbrooks, age 30, is a nurse practitioner for Floyd Pediatrics.
Holdbrooks stands charged with possession of meth, the possession of meth with the intent to distribute, felony tampering with evidence, with possession of marijuana, possession of a weapon during the commission of a felony and reckless conduct.
