Police seized a vaping device containing THC — the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana — from a pregnant woman after a high-speed chase in Jackson Township on Monday night.

“But she had not used it today,” according to charging documents.

Northern York County Regional Police also seized several bags of suspected marijuana and drug paraphernalia from the car Kimberly Persephone Bolton was driving, enough to charge her with possession with intent to deliver drugs, a felony.

They also found a pair of brass knuckles inside the car with the word “love” stamped on them, documents state.

Bolton, 24, of the first block of Country View Court, East Berlin, faces a host of additional charges, including fleeing or attempting to elude police and possession of offensive weapons, according to online dockets.

As of Wednesday, she remained in York County Prison on $200,000 bail. She has a preliminary hearing before District Judge Thomas J. Reilly on Jan. 22, dockets indicate.

Police spotted Bolton in a green Nissan sedan on Lincoln Highway and Biesecker Road with items hanging from her rear-view mirror, possibly obstructing her view and tried to pull her over about 8:43 p.m. documents state.

Bolton did not stop, but sped up, reaching 107 mph while heading west on Lincoln Highway. She also passed several vehicles using the wrong lane and swerved while attempting to get away from police, documents state.

She finally stopped in a parking lot on Lincoln Highway near Beaver Creek Road. When police asked her why she did not stop, she said it was because she was out on bail, documents state.

A check of court dockets shows that on Aug. 29, Bolton was released on her own recognizance after an arrest for possession of a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in Jackson Township. In that case, she has a pre-trial conference in York County Court of Common Pleas on Feb. 11, dockets indicate.

After the chase on Monday, police found the first e-cigarette on Bolton and then smelled marijuana coming from the Nissan. That’s when they found the suspected marijuana and other items, documents state.

“I asked K. Bolton if the items in the vehicle were all hers and she advised she could not answer that,” documents state.
