Pair allegedly kept ledger of drug transactions

An Exeter woman and a Cassville man are each facing two felony drug charges after a search at a home in Exeter turned up methamphetamine and a pipe.

Heather Sartin, 29, of Exeter, and Michael Bogle, 31, of Cassville, are each charged with possession of a controlled substance and delivery of a controlled substance

According to a probable cause statement filed by Kenen Martinez, Exeter police chief, a search warrant was executed at a home on Glenda Street in Exeter on Thursday.

The statement alleges Bogle distributed meth and traded meth and marijuana for various controlled substances, keeping a ledger of such transactions, as well as items commonly used in the packaging and distribution of illegal drugs.

During a search of the residence, Martinez allegedly found a glass pipe in the pair's bedroom, and a package with a measurable amount of a white substance, both of which tested positive for methamphetamine.

Sartin and Bogle are each being held in the Barry County jail on cash-only bonds of $25,000. Both have been arraigned, and disposition hearings for both are scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Tuesday in the courtroom of Judge Robert Foulke.
