LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Louisville Metro Police arrested a woman on drug and theft charges after the drugs were found in her child's backpack.

An arrest report says police were called to the 5400 block of Wintergreen Road after a person reported someone was stealing their medication.

Police said when they arrived early on June 14, the suspect, Randi J. Odle, 27, of Louisville, was carrying several bags. One of bags was a backpack with a child's name on it. When officers asked to search the bags they found a baggie of what appeared to be marijuana in a small pouch in a pink child's backpack. They also found eight pills in a pouch of the backpack.

The victim told officers the pills were alprazolam and came from his prescription pill bottle.

Police arrested Odle for possession of controlled substances, receiving stolen property and possession of marijuana.
