Jefferson County Woman Arrested on Meth Possession and Active Warrants

Warrant for Failure to Appear Unlawful Use of a Legend Drug

On June 26, at approximately 12:35pm Officer Brittany Tate of the Madison Police Department initiated a traffic stop on a Chevrolet Blazer with an expired Indiana temporary plate while traveling north on Michigan Road.

Officer Tate approached the driver side door and began speaking to the female driver. Officer Tate asked the driver for her license, but she stated she did not have her license with her. The driver was identified as Kila M. Kilby. It was learned through Central Dispatch that Kila Kilby had an active warrant through Jefferson County for Failure to Appear Unlawful use of a Legend Drug. Kila Kilby had her two young daughters present in the vehicle as well as another female juvenile and an adult male. K-9 Officer Brad Demaree of the Madison Police Department arrived on scene to assist Officer Tate. Officer Tate had Kila Kilby exit the vehicle and she was placed in handcuffs for her active warrant. Inside the driver's side door Officer Tate observed a small zip loc style baggie with a powdered substance inside.

The fact that Kila Kilby did not have valid registration, no insurance and no valid driver in the vehicle, officers would need to tow the vehicle from the location. Kila Kilby denied consent to search her vehicle. Officer Demaree had K-9 Champi conduct an open air sniff of Kila Kilby's vehicle and Champi indicated a positive alert for narcotics. While conducting a search of the vehicle, Officer Tate located a small contact lens case inside the center console that contained a crystal like residue that field tested positive for methamphetamine.

Kila Kilby was charged with Possession of Methamphetamine Level 5 Felony since there were children present in the vehicle. Kila Kilby is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
