A Kings County woman was recently arrested on multiple charges including possession of a firearm under the influence of a controlled substance and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
Shortly before 9 PM on Tuesday, January 25, a deputy spotted a speeding vehicle being driven in the area of 13th Avenue and Jackson Avenue in rural Kings County. The deputy pursued the vehicle off the main road and onto a dirt road, where the driver — later identified as 36-year-old Jennifer Williamson — turned toward a residence and drove over a brick path and right onto the front lawn, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Williamson reportedly then got out of her car and claimed she was at the residence to visit a friend, but nobody living there knew who she was talking about. At that point, after a few questions, Williamson admitted to that her vehicle registration was expired and that she was on active parole. She also admitted to having a meth pipe and a .45 caliber bullet on her, and displayed signs of being under the influence of a controlled substance, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies then searched Williamson’s vehicle and found a loaded semi-automatic pistol with an extended magazine, but found no records when looking up the gun’s serial number, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Williamson was ultimately booked at the Kings County Jail on multiple charges related to the gun and being under the influence, with bail set at $65,000.
