LaFOLLETTE—A woman was jailed after police answered a call about loud music.

LaFollette Police Officer Adam Southern was dispatched on Dec. 28, 2013, to a home on Fir Street after a neighbor complained about loud music. Upon his arrival, Margo Marie Paul, 54, allegedly admitted to playing her stereo loudly so she could “reminisce some good times with her friend,” reports indicated.

Southern reportedly asked if he could step into the house because it was raining, and once inside he reportedly noticed two pipes with a burnt, black residue on a shelf, reports said.

Police asked Paul if they could search the residence, and she agreed, the reports said. The search allegedly revealed a bullet cartridge with tweezers and a burnt, black residue, as well as a straw.

Paul allegedly admitted to smoking marijuana earlier that day, according to police.

She was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
