Woman used her dog's urine to try to pass drug test, police say

Police say 40-year-old Julie Miller was arrested for allegedly trying to use a sample of her dog’s urine for a drug test.

PINEVILLE, KY (3TV/CBS5) -- A Kentucky woman has been arrested for allegedly trying to use her dog's urine to try to pass a drug test.

A Facebook post from the Pineville Police Department says 40-year-old Julie Miller sneaked a sample of her dog’s urine into the Bell County Probation and Parole Office.

Miller is on probation, and as part of her supervision, she was asked for a drug screen. Police say she brought in a urine sample, but that it was her dog's urine, not hers.

"The officer asked if the urine was hers and she admitted it was not, that it was her dog’s urine. She was asked by Officer Smith if it was brought in because she knew she would fail the drug test and she stated yes," reads the post from police.

Police say Miller admitted she brought the canine sample because she had recently used methamphetamine and Suboxone, and she knew she would fail the drug test.

Miller faces charges of tampering with physical evidence and trafficking a controlled substance.
