NORTHWOOD | A Manly woman is accused of possessing meth at a Northwood hotel early Thursday morning. 

Emily Elizabeth Buttshaw, 35, is charged with possession of a controlled substance — methamphetamine — and possession of drug paraphernalia.  

The Worth County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release it received a call about 3:35 a.m. Thursday from the Holiday Inn Hotel about suspicious activity reported by Buttshaw.

Buttshaw allegedly told police she was left in the parking lot and her stuff was thrown all over the parking lot, court documents said.

She was arrested on a Cerro Gordo County warrant for failure to appear in a third-degree theft case. Buttshaw was accused of writing a bad check to Discount Computer and Cell Phone repair for $107 in October 2017. A jury trial in that case is scheduled for Feb. 27 in Cerro Gordo County District Court. 

Upon arrest, the deputy asked Buttshaw if she had anything illegal on her and she responded she had some "dope" in her pocket, court documents said. The material was recovered in a booking room. 

Law enforcement recovered two glass pipes used for smoking meth; two clear, plastic bags containing crystalline residue; a mirror with crystal-like residue on it; straws commonly used for snorting drugs and two small, plastic containers with a green, leafy residue, court documents said. 

Buttshaw was booked into the Worth County Jail, where she is listed as Emily Elizabeth Francis. 

She is being held on a $6,000 bond. No court date has been set.

Buttshaw is scheduled to appear in Worth County District Court Jan. 31 for an OWI trial.
