A 25-year-old woman was being held without bond at the Sumter County Detention Center following her arrest Friday at Motel 6 in Wildwood.

Wildwood police were called to the motel initially to investigate a report of suspicious luggage in the parking lot. Then they began investigating an unregistered guest in one of the rooms.

In a room on the second floor, they found Stevie Taylor Elizabeth Baker, according to an arrest report from the Wildwood Police Department.

In the room, police also found drug equipment and methamphetamine.

Baker had been convicted in 2010 of possession of oxycodone.

She was booked on a felony charge of drug possession and a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug equipment.
