Two Ocala women arrested for drug use in jail visitation center restroom
Two women were arrested Tuesday when they were caught using intravenous drugs in the female restroom at the Marion County jail visitation center.
The Marion County Sheriff’s Office arrested Casey Brooke West, 26, and Ayla Susan Tillander, 27, both of Ocala.
According to a sheriff’s office release, West, of 4530 SW 52nd Circle, told Deputy Jonah Music in her interview that she accompanied Tillander, of 709 NE Ninth Ave., to the visiting center so she could visit her boyfriend, Brenton Howard.
West said she and Tillander are IV drug users, and they shot up Dilaudid recently.
The release said that a search of the girls’ vehicle revealed Dilaudid pills and a box of syringes. West’s purse had more drugs and spoons with white residue that she identified as Dilaudid.
West also said the items in the car and her purse were how she and Tillander prepared the drug for use to use in the restroom.
According to the release, both women are charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia. West was also charged with possession of a controlled substance and a second-degree felony of dealing or trafficking in stolen property.
