Ocala, Florida — Ocala Police made a double arrest as they attempted to serve a warrant on a felon over the weekend.

Ocala Police Officers Hall and Diesso responded to the 200 block Northeast 19th Avenue after they received a tip that a woman with outstanding warrants would be at the location.

While police were waiting in the area, a 2000 Honda pulled up and the suspect, Allison Shear, 19, exited the vehicle.


As the officers made contact with Shear, Officer Diesso approached the vehicle and made contact with a female, later identified as Kathryn Anderson, 20, who was sitting in the driver’s seat.

Officer Diesso reported that as he approached Anderson, he saw her place a pill container between her legs.

When asked about the container, Anderson handed it to the officer.

According to the arrest report, the pill bottle contained a small plastic baggie with methamphetamine, and under that was a 8mg tablet of Dilaudid.

Anderson did not have a prescription for the Dilaudid.

Shear was arrested on the outstanding warrant for Violation of Probation in a previous case in which she was charged with DUI Impairment and Possession of Cocaine. Additionally, she was charged with Possession of Drugs without a Prescription and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Shear is being held without bond.

Anderson was charged with Possession of Methamphetamine and Possession of a Controlled Substance without a Prescription.

Anderson was released on $4,000 bond.
