LEBANON, Mo. (AP) - A 24-year-old Phillipsburg woman who told police she wanted to go to jail before she ended up overdosing on drugs has gotten her wish.

Last week, Richelle Denise Vanluven handed police her purse and said she had three syringes loaded with a mixture of methamphetamine, bath salts and opiates.

The Lebanon Daily Record reports officers arrested her late Wednesday on a felony drug possession charge.

Police say Vanluven told them she missed a meeting with her probation officer so a warrant would be issued, then became upset when told there was no warrant.

Police say Vanluven told them the only place she could stay off drugs was behind bars. She remains in Laclede County jail in lieu of a $25,000 cash-only bond.
