While talking to Hope Grissom, a Lawrence County deputy Everett Chase Kirk noticed she appeared to have something in her cheek, to which deputy Kirk asked Grissom what it was. Hope Grissom answered to deputy Kirk that it was “gummy bears,” but when deputy Kirk looked in her mouth with a flashlight, he spotted three plastic bags that he shortly identified as containing meth and heroin.
