GCSO reports that deputies knocked on the door of the trailer and could hear and see someone moving around inside, but no one answered.

The report says he replied by saying his name was “Missy.”

After removing the wig, deputies discovered Rice had been the one holding the door closed.

A search of Rice’s backpack found three needles, a pipe and a bent spoon.

Rice was charged with unlawful drug paraphernalia, criminal impersonation and served two arrest warrants.
