Woman pulls out bag of pot when asked for ID, Clearwater police say

CLEARWATER — When asked for her identification, a 27-year-old woman also pulled out a bag of marijuana, according to police, leading to her arrest for possession of that drug and an assortment of pills.

Danielle Rae Shockey was sitting in a car in the parking lot of the La Quinta Inn Clearwater Central at 21338 U.S. 19 N just before 3 a.m. Saturday when a Clearwater police officer approached the car and asked Shockey what she was doing.

Shockey, of Clearwater, said she was talking to her boyfriend and considering renting a hotel room, an arrest report shows.

The officer asked Shockey for her ID. She reached into her purse and removed her ID along with a bag of marijuana, police said. Shockey tried to conceal the bag, according to the report, but was unsuccessful.

Police searched Shockey's purse and found pain relievers oxycodone (57 pills) and methadone (seven pills), sedatives diazepam (brand name: Valium, three pills) and clonazepam (one pill), according to the report.

Shockey said she smokes marijuana for medicinal reasons, police said, and that the pills weren't hers. She was arrested on one count of marijuana possession, a misdemeanor, and multiple counts of felony possession of a controlled substance.
