UPDATE: Ms. Saland called BocaNewsNow.com Monday to report that her urine was clean, that she had nothing in her “private part,” believes she was given roofies on a date the night before, and there was no cocaine possession whatsoever, police made it up completely. “I had five pills in my bra,” she said, “which I had picked up for $50 for someone else. Heroin does not come in pills.” As for the damage, “there was no damage to my car. I drive a Kia Forte. It would have been dented. There was no dent. There is not a scratch on my car.” Saland also says she was never taken to the hospital.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton woman who crashed her car into a curb in front of an officer driving on Palmetto Park Road allegedly was highly intoxicated and carried a bag of heroin in her private part.

The just-filed police report, obtained and reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com, states that the officer was driving in the area of 745 West Palmetto Park Road around 6:50 p.m. Sunday evening when he saw Erinn Saland — in a gray Kia — crash into the curb. After securing Saland and the vehicle, the officer called for a DUI Investigator who documented the following.

“Upon my arrival on the scene, the Boca Raton Officer advised he was driving behind a gray Kia and watched it crash into a curb. The Officer expressed his concern that the driver, Erin Saland, was intoxicated due to her driving pattern and slurred speech. Initial observations of Salad revealed her to have bloodshot/watery eyes, slow/slurred speech pattern, and the odor of alcohol emanating from her breath. The officer explained to Saland that he was done investigating the crash and that I would now be conducting a criminal investigation into DUI. Saland advised she understood and would be willing to participate in Field Sobriety Exercises (FEs). Saland was read her Miranda Warnings and she acknowledged she understood.”

Saland allegedly had issues performing the tests and was eventually taken to the Palm Beach County Blood/Breath Alcohol Testing Facility where police say she provided breath samples yielding .169 and .169 — more than two times the legal limit of .08. But despite the test results, the officer wrote: “I believe that the sample collected does not completely depict the level of intoxication I was observing and as such a urine sample was collected. During the urine collection, Saland handed the Officer a small plastic bag that was stuffed within her vagina containing six clear capsules filled with a powdery substance that tested positive for Heroin. Saland was transported to Boca Regional hospital for medical clearance and then transported to the Palm Beach County Jail.”

A search of Saland’s car, according to the report, also found a straw that tested positive for cocaine. Saland was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail. She was released several hours later to a family member.
