Working on a tip and with Probation and Parole officers, Logan County Deputies searched a Phillips Road residence and seized a total of 79.3 grams of a substance suspected to be methamphetamine in June.
The tip led to charges being brought against six individuals.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, a deputy and Logan County Sheriff Boyd Hicks learned Barbie Hodges, 32, and Michael McGrath, 32, of Booneville, were in possession of “a large quantity” of methamphetamine and, because the two are convicted felons, enlisted the aid of Probation & Parole officers for a home visit.
A search of the residence turned up 77.3 grams, 1.9 grams and .1 grams of the suspected substance in three different locations.
Also seized were 15.25 grams of suspected marijuana, an unopened suboxone, $4,460 in cash, five broken Viagra pills, 20 pills marked R67, and a Ruger .380 pistol with six rounds.
Hodges faces charges including Class A felony possession of methamphetamine with purpose to deliver, Class D felonies possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm by certain persons maintaining a drug premises and possession of a controlled substance, Class Y felony simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms and Class C felony operation of a communication facility.
McGrath faces each of those charges and an additional Class B felony count of possession or use of paraphernalia to manufacture methamphetamine.
Angela Kaye Williams, 36, and Richard Aaron Barragan, 36, are accused of selling 1, 0.7 and 1.7 grams of methamphetamine to a confidential informant working with the Logan County Sheriff’s Office on three occasions in June.
The couple was arrested after a search warrant was served at a Second Street residence. Seized were drug paraphernalia items and two cell phones.
Williams, according to an arrest warrant affidavit, told investigators she would purchase about a half ounce of the product from McGrath and split it with another individual and that Barragan knew about and was present during the transactions.
Williams also admitted to flushing methamphetamine in the toilet when officers arrived. Williams is charged with Class D felony tampering with physical evidence for that alleged action.
Both Williams and Barragan are charged with Class B felony use or possession of paraphernalia to manufacture, Class C felonies delivery of methamphetamine, three counts, and use of a communication facility and Class D felonies maintaining a drug premises and endangering the welfare of a minor.
Sharee Renee Sharp, 30, and Michael Emanuel Sharp, 30, of Booneville, are accused of selling 0.5, 1, 1.7 grams, a half ounce of a substance believed to be methamphetamine to a confidential informant working with the Logan County Sheriff’s Office in four times in 15 days in June.
The Sharps are charged with four counts of Class C felony delivery of methamphetamine, Class D felony maintaining a drug premises, Class C operation of a communication facility, Class B felony possession of paraphernalia to manufacture a controlled substance and Class D endangering the welfare of a minor.
In an unrelated case, Willie Carol Barnes, Jr., 50, is accused of selling methamphetamine to a confidential informant working with the Logan County Sheriff’s Office in January.
The transaction, an arrest warrant states, was for $100.
Barnes is charged with Class C felonies distribution of methamphetamine and use of a communication facility.
