• Woman accused of smoking meth in Social Security parking lot with baby in lap


    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office arrested a 33-year-old mother Wednesday after an officer observed her smoking meth in car while holding a baby in her lap.

    The incident occurred in the parking lot of the Social Security Office on Bonneval Road in Jacksonville.

    JSO was called to the parking lot after a complaint. When they arrived, the responding officer says Jill Waffle, the occupant of the car, had a small pipe with smoke coming from it and a 1-year-old girl in her lap.

    In the report, Waffle was asked if she was smoking “crack,” and she said “no.” When asked if she was smoking meth, she began to cry and said “yes.” After being placed in a patrol car, she told police that drugs were located in her purse, on the front seat and on the floor of the car.

     JSO says they found meth in the car. The report says Waffle admitted smoking the meth while her boyfriend was in the Social Security Office, and that she was a drug addict and had “fallen off the wagon.”

     When the officer checked Waffle’s drivers license, it was found to be suspended.

     Waffle was charged with drug possession with intent to purchase, child abuse and DUI while accompanied by a minor and driving on a suspended license.
