SEBASTIAN – A 24-year-old woman was arrested after deputies found her with methamphetamine in a shed behind her home, according to the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office.

Sydney Ann Casher was charged with Methamphetamine possession, and two counts of Drug Paraphernalia.

On Monday, at approximately 6:30 p.m., deputies were dispatched to the 7000 block of 129th Street in Sebastian by the Florida Department of Children and Families in reference to possible drug use.
