MENTOR -- Mentor police received lots of calls on a black Jeep Liberty all over the road on state Route 2 near Center Street on Monday afternoon.

Police say the Jeep was eastbound when it was pulled over near the Center Street exit.

Police said the driver, Jennifer Gruver, 37, of Painesville, appeared lethargic, her words were slurred when she talked and she failed some field sobriety tests.

In a search of the Jeep police found 0.6 grams of heroin, three opana pills -- an opiate painkiller -- spoons and straws with residue on them, two syringes and a razor blade.

Gruver agreed to have a blood sample drawn at a local hospital.

Police charged her with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, aggravated drug possession (a felony), drug abuse, and possession of both drug-abuse instruments and paraphernalia.

Gruver was arraigned Tuesday before Judge John Trebets in Mentor Municipal Court.

Trebets set her bond at $25,000, which has not been posted to date.

She is scheduled to appear in court again at 2 p.m. Aug. 13.
