This article is compiled from reports issued by the Pettis County Sheriff's Office.


Friday evening, Pettis County Deputies conducted a traffic stop in the area of Highway Y and Botts Road in Pettis County. The vehicle was stopped because it did not have any license plates. After the stop, the driver’s information was checked with PCJOMM. There were no current warrants for the driver’s arrest, but she was on probation for a charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance. After a consent search of the vehicle, Deputies found an orange pill bottle inside of a white purse with a worn, faded and out of date label. The bottle had a label with the driver’s name on it, and the label indicated the bottle should contain Propranolol (a medication used to treat heart problems and high blood pressure, as well as migraines). Inside the bottle, however, were pills identified as Alprazolam, Diazepam, and Tramadol Hydrochloride*. After reading the driver her Miranda Rights, the driver denied the pills in the bottle were anything but Propranolol. Gina M. Rose, 49, of Independence, was placed under arrest. Rose was placed on a 24-hour hold pending three felony charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance. Rose was issued a cash or surety bond of $10,000.

*All three of these pills are categorized as “Schedule IV Controlled Substances”. Alprazolam, known by various trade names, is the most commonly prescribed psychotropic medication in the United States. Alprazolam is frequently prescribed to manage panic and anxiety disorders. Alprazolam has also been misused for recreational purposes because of its disinhibition, euphoria, and anxiolytic effects. Diazepam is used to relieve symptoms of anxiety and alcohol withdrawal. This medicine may also be used to treat certain seizure disorders and help relax muscles or relieve muscle spasm. Diazepam is a benzodiazepine. Tramadol is used for the short-term relief of severe pain. It is generally only prescribed when other forms of non-opioid pain relief have not been successful in managing pain or are not tolerated. Tramadol is not usually recommended for the treatment of chronic (long-term) pain.
