The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office arrested a mother and daughter duo from Modesto late Wednesday night after more than eight grams of methamphetamine was discovered in the mother’s bra.

At about 10 p.m., a Tuolumne County Sheriff's deputy watched a vehicle swerve into an opposing lane and initiated a traffic stop on a silver Toyota sedan on Chicken Ranch Road in Jamestown.

When the deputy contacted the driver, the mother, and the passenger, the daughter, the passenger voluntarily admitted that she was in possession of a methamphetamine pipe, a press release said.

A record check of the occupants determined that the passenger had an active out of county warrant, and that the mother was a convicted felon.

Sgt. Andrea Benson said she could not release the criminal history of the driver, but it was confirmed by the deputy that she had been convicted of felony drug charges.

A search was initiated of the vehicle and of the belongings of the occupants.

Inside the driver’s purse, 80 new plastic baggies and mace were located. Inside the bra of the driver, 8.36 grams of methamphetamine and a methamphetamine pipe were located.

The mother admitted to the deputy that she had sold some of the methamphetamine to her daughter, a Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office press release said.

Kelly Amber Schriver, the mother, 53, of Modesto, was booked on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance for sale, transporting a controlled substance, being in possession of pepper spray while a felon in possession of a controlled substance paraphernalia.

Ashley Nichole Schriver, the daughter, 31, of Modesto, was booked on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance paraphernalia and her warrant for failure to appear on a possession of a narcotic controlled substance charge.
Kelly Schriver was booked into the Tuolumne County Jail on $20,000 bail and Ashley Schriver was booked into the Tuolumne County Jail on $13,000 bail.
