ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany woman, found asleep in her running car in a motel parking lot, is charged with drug possession.     

33-year-old April Story was charged with possession of marijuana early Sunday morning.     

Drug unit agents say it's the second person this month arrested in Albany, asleep behind the wheel, in possession of narcotics.     

Police found Story in the parking lot of the Days Inn in the 400 block of West Oglethorpe.     

She is still being held in the Dougherty County jail.

Two weeks ago, a citizen called police after seeing 33-year-old Earl Mayberry asleep inside his car at Jefferson Street and 7th Avenue, having slept through several light changes.

Officers went to the scene and tried to arouse Mayberry, which they finally did. Searching his car, they found a plastic bag containing crack cocaine.
