EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - An Evansville woman is under arrest on cocaine charges, and police are looking for another suspect.

Undercover officers say they bought cocaine from Laron Eskew.

Detectives say he was followed to a home on the 800 block of Adams, and Tuesday, a search warrant was served.

Police say Shirley Finott and Herman Moore were inside the home, along with items used to smoke crack cocaine.

A police officer took Finott to the bathroom, where he says she kept pulling away. The officer says 17 baggies of cocaine were found in Finott's buttocks.

Police say Eskew was not at the home and could not be found, but a bag of his was there along with a loaded hand gun. Police say other drug related items were found throughout the home.

Finott was arrested and taken to the Vanderburgh County Jail. Moore arrested on nuisance charges.

Officers say more cocaine was found in Finott's bra during booking.
