Woman faces 6 felonies for drugs
Suspect allegedly brings drugs into jail after traffic stop, arrest
An Exeter Woman is facing six felonies and a misdemeanor after allegedly possessing drugs and bringing them into the Barry County jail following a traffic stop in Cassville.
Heather Sartin, 29, of Exeter, is charged with three counts of delivery of a controlled substance, three counts of possession of a controlled substance, one count of delivery of a controlled substance at a jail, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
According to a probable cause report filed by Colt Beck, officer with the Cassville Police Department, while on a traffic stop, Sartin gave permission for her vehicle to be searched. Beck allegedly found a homemade metallic spoon with remnants of methamphetamine, a digital scale and a coin purse containing a baggie with methamphetamine.
Beck asked if Sartin had any other contraband. She said no and emptied her pockets, where nothing was located. Beck said Sartin was acting nervous during the exchange.
Sartin was transported to the jail, and upon a search by a female staff member, Sartin was allegedly found in possession of multiple drugs. On her person was: a glass pipe testing positive for methamphetamine, a cellophane wrapper with five acetominophen and oxycodon hydrochloride pills, four diazepam pills, a ziplock bag with 4.8 grams of marijuana and a ziplock bag with 5.2 grams of methamphetamine.
Sartin is being held in the Barry County jail on a cash-only bond of $50,000. She has been arraigned, and a disposition hearing is scheduled for Thursday at 8:30 a.m. in the courtroom of Judge Robert Foulke.
