“Our deputies try to get as many drugs off our streets every day and it carries over onto the Interstate. Regardless of whether the final destination of these drugs is Anderson County or our neighboring communities, it always leads to more crime,” the department said.

Deputies concluded Natanova was in charge of transporting the drugs and charged her with failing to maintain a lane and trafficking cocaine.


Natanova was taken to Anderson County Detention Center.
