Megan Sequeria found unresponsive behind wheel at gas pump with ecstasy in her bra
36-year-old Megan Sequeria was jailed on March 20th after falling asleep high at the wheel of her Mitsubishi while at the gas pump. Officers knocked on the window, but Sequeria didn’t respond. Her door was unlocked, so the officer gently shook her shoulder; she opened her eyes partially but closed them again. Officers asked if she was ok, and she nodded yes but seemed completely confused about where she was and what was going on. Officers asked Sequeria to exit the vehicle to question her. As she exited the car, a folded-up dollar bill fell from her lap, officers stated that judging from their experience, it looked to be folded in a manner used for drugs. Sequeria admitted to taking Gabapentin, a nerve medicine, when officers asked her if she had any substances or anything to drink. A white powdery residue was found inside the dollar bill during the vehicle search. She agreed to sobriety tests which she performed poorly on and was taken into custody. She later admitted to having ecstasy pills in her bra, which was recovered by a female officer.
