An early morning disturbance in a local club parking lot led to the arrest of a 21-year-old local woman on a charge accusing her of trafficking methamphetamine.
Sgt. Brice Woolly, Ardmore Police Department Criminal Investigations Division, said Brittany White was arrested about 1:50 a.m. Sunday by Officer Bart Smith. White was one of three people involved in a parking lot disturbance.
“The officer made contact with White as she was getting into her car,” Woolly said. “During the investigation she was found in possession of more than 50 pills, about 6-grams of marijuana and a large plastic bag containing what weighed out as 56.8 grams of methamphetamine.”
First Assistant District Attorney Heather Cooper filed formal charges Tuesday. White made an initial appearance on the felony charge, as well as a misdemeanor drug charge, the same day in front of Special District Judge Carson Brooks Tuesday. Bond was set at $100,000.
Court records show White was released from the Carter County Detention Center Wednesday after posting bond.
The local woman is to appear for a case conference in district court June 1.
If convicted she faces up to life in prison and/or a fine ranging from $25,000 to $200,000.
