Police: Texoma Woman Swallows Heroin

A Texoma woman is facing charges after police said she swallowed heroin, while being taken to jail.

Wichita Falls police went to the Dollar General store on Seymour Highway, April 20, on a stolen money call.

Police said Claudia Burleson pulled out a coke bottle and a sunglasses case.

Police said the case had four syringe needles, a folded spoon, a glass meth smoking pipe and a bag with two small blue pills in it. The pills were determined to be morphine sulfate.

Police arrested Burleson and on the way to jail, they said she kept scratching her nose on her sweater.

Officers checked the back seat and found a torn clear baggie. Police then removed Burleson from the vehicle and then checked the area she was standing in. Police said they saw the same baggie on the floor.

Officers said inside the bag was a black tar substance, identified as heroin. Burleson told police she swallowed the drug because she was scared.

She was taken to united regional for treatment and then taken to the Wichita County Jail.

Burleson was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance and Tampering with Physical Evidence.
