HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

A Flint woman was arrested on drug charges in Henderson County Sunday night.

According to Henderson County Sheriff Botie Hillhouse, just after 10 p.m., Rachel Rush, 33, was arrested at the intersection of FM 315 and County Road 4201 after deputies found suspected illegal drugs, pills, and needles in her vehicle.

In video released Monday, the suspect was seen on the vehicle camera removing a concealed item from her clothing and placing it in between the rear seat and backrest of the vehicle. Police believe the item contained a substantial amount of suspected methamphetamine.

"It appears she had it in her britches pretty deep," Hillhouse said. "[Deputies] watched their in-car video and then searched the vehicle and found suspected methamphetamine."

He says a full search was not performed on scene because there was not a female deputy at the scene of the arrest, and that's why the plastic bag was found later.

Rush faces charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of a dangerous drug, according to Hillhouse.
