Woman on first date booked on meth charges, deputies say


Published:

BROOKSVILLE - A Spring Hill woman was arrested Tuesday night after being found with a syringe containing methamphetamine.

Megan Steele was arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia after a traffic stop.

A sheriff's office arrest affidavit shows a vehicle Steele was riding in was pulled over because of a broken headlight. After Steele, 28, was seen "shaking" and "twitching," the driver told a deputy that he was on a first date with her after meeting on a dating website, and allowed his car to be searched.

A search of several of Steele's bags found two syringes: one containing methamphetamine and the other empty.

Steele denied the syringes belonged to her, but was booked in the Hernando County Jail. She was being held on no bail because she was already out on bail on similar charges.

Court records show Steele has been convicted of trespassing, battery, driving with a suspended license and leaving the scene of an accident in the past.
