Meth dealer charged with felony by Hillhouse's Sheriff Office

Athens, September 5, 2017 – A Poynor woman was arrested late Thursday night for possession with intent to deliver a substantial amount of methamphetamine, and Sheriff Botie Hillhouse said her original charge was compounded when more drugs were discovered as she was jailed.

“We won’t tolerate this poison on the streets, and I certainly won’t let it in our jail,” Hillhouse said.

Angela Davis, 41, was arrested around 9 p.m. in a parking lot of a business on State Highway 155 in Berryville.

Narcotic Investigator Josh Rickman noticed Davis with a clear, plastic baggie containing a crystal substance suspected to be methamphetamine. She was on foot, approaching a parked vehicle.

For having more than four grams of the methamphetamine, she was charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, a First Degree Felony.

When she was searched at the Henderson County Jail, more methamphetamine was discovered on her, and she was charged with possession of a prohibited substance in a correctional facility.

“Our team is alert around the clock,” Hillhouse said. “That includes on the streets, at night and in the jail.”
