The Wicomico County State’s Attorney says that the picture of a methadone bottle posted by a local blogger with Salisbury City Council member Laura Mitchell’s name on it did not come from police evidence.
WBOC reports that Mitchell said she believed the bottle was in police evidence after an alleged traffic stop with her son.
State’s Attorney Matt Maciarello said that after checking there was no possibility that the photograph came from any sort of law enforcement contact.
The reports indicated the pill bottle was not part of any investigation between Mitchell’s son and law enforcement.
Maciarello said whatever contact there was between law enforcement and Mitchell’s son did not have anything to do with her prescriptions.
Mitchell says she is satisfied with the report from law enforcement and is moving on.
Mitchell says she took the drug for migraines.
Methadone, which is used to treat heroin addiction, is known to be a pain reliever.
