Brassiere used to hide suspected fentanyl lands woman in county jail

A 30-year-old woman remains in jail after police arrested her when they found a small quantity of suspected fentanyl hidden in her brassiere.

Just so happens that Lindsey Bailey also was wanted on at least seven warrants including drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to a Dayton Police Department incident report.

She became the focus of police Saturday morning when Daniel Kosak, 77, told them Bailey, who was asleep on the couch of his home on Pinecrest Drive, had warrants out for her arrest. He also told them she had been nuisance-abated from the property, which means she shouldn’t have been there.

Kosak let the police in and he left the property. They woke up Bailey. Startled, she jumped up and attempted to dig into the left side of her shirt toward her bra area. Officers told her three times to stop and then placed her in handcuffs.

They told her she was being arrested on the warrants.

The officers, for their safety, asked what was in her shirt. She told them there was a baggie possibly containing fentanyl. A female officer dispatched to the address completed a search of Bailey and found in the center of Bailey’s bra a small, clear plastic baggie containing a white powdery substance.

The officers couldn’t verify if Bailey had been nuisance-abated from the property, so they decided not to pursue that charge. If the county prosecutor’s office is able to determine Bailey violated the ordinance, it’s possible that charge could be added.

Bailey was booked into jail on the five felony and two misdemeanor drug-related warrants and remained there Monday night on $12,500 bond. She’s due in court Tuesday, according to online jail records.
