TC woman faces drug charges

TRAVERSE CITY — Michigan State Police arrested a woman accused of possessing more than 15 grams of suspected cocaine and heroin outside Tom’s Food Market on Division Street.

Amber Elizabeth Clous, 27, of Traverse City, faces two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance. Each count carries up to four years in jail and $25,000 in fines.

A state police trooper saw Clous in the passenger seat of a car pulling into the Tom’s parking lot Sept. 8. The trooper recognized Clous from previous contacts and found she had an outstanding warrant.

The trooper approached Clous’s vehicle, but she got out, pulled two plastic bags from her pocket and dropped them on the ground, according to court records.

The trooper retrieved the bags and weighed and field-tested their contents. The contents of one bag weighed 7.5 grams and tested positive for the presence of cocaine. The contents of the other weighed 8.25 grams and tested positive for heroin.

Clous confessed to possessing the drugs during an interview, court records state.
