Three individuals are behind bars after being arrested on Halloween night on drug charges. According to Miller County Prosecuting Attorney Benjamin Winfrey, Tammy Boyd has been charged with 2 counts of felony possession of a controlled substance. Police stopped two cars leaving Boyd’s home which allegedly resulted in the discovery of drugs and drug related items. Police then visited Boyd’s home and discovered items that tested positive for methamphetamine. Boyd has been charged as a “prior and persistent offender” because she has been found guilty of 2 prior drug related felonies which heightens the punishments to a potential 30 years if found guilty. She was already free on $100,000 bond related to a previous incident involving the alleged distribution of meth in September. Winfrey filed a motion to revoke her bond. The two others arrested during the investigation have been identified as Jay Wasmer who has been charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and is being held on a $50,000 bond, while Carol Walsh is charged with possession of a controlled substance and is being held on $25,000 bond.
