When deputies arrived, the women were still in the store. A deputy made contact with 22-year-old Sarah Meehan of Gulf Breeze, who admitted to having controlled substances in her possession.
Meehan was searched and deputies found 69 grams of marijuana, 123 Xanax bars, 31 oxycodone pills, 34 ecstasy pills, 6.2 grams of heroin, 5.1 grams of cocaine and 35.7 grams of methamphetamines.

She is being held in the Santa Rosa County Jail on $125,000 bond, Johnson said.
