MIAMI COUNTY — A Riverside woman received probation after being found in possession of a small mixture of heroin, fentanyl, and cocaine.

Amanda B. Brewer, 32, received two years of probation, a $500 fine, and 180 days of suspended jail time for two counts of first-degree misdemeanor possession of drugs, amended down from fifth-degree felony possession of drugs.

She was picked up near Taco Bell in Tipp City for warrants outside of the Riverside Police Department on Jan. 27.

The drugs were tested at the Miami Valley Regional Crime Laboratory, and the results came back in August.

An additional charge of fifth-degree felony possession of drugs was dismissed.
