EDITOR’S NOTE: This is part three of a three-part series covering the life of Leslie Kathryn Draper as recounted by her during a jailhouse interview.
Los Alamos police exercised a search warrant on a Villa Street home in late February. They worked with state police and the Clandestine Meth Lab Unit out of Albuquerque to address and remove hazardous materials found inside the bedroom in which Leslie Kathryn Draper had been staying.
Draper was not home and a warrant was issued for her arrest.
“I pretty much forgot everything when my kids left and I (eventually) got dropped off in Albuquerque,” she said. “I saw a wanted poster about me and called my bondsman in Alabama. He said, ‘Get back here now and we’ll straighten everything out here and in New Mexico, too,’ and he wasn’t totally mad at me.”
Police circulated a poster of Draper in late February that stated she was wanted on an extraditable warrant out of Alabama for possession of a dangerous controlled substance.
Two days before leaving for Alabama Draper was robbed.
“My kids’ pictures, my clothes, everything was gone,” she said. “I had $800 and it was robbed, too.”
