Linton Woman After Undercover Bust

Last updated on Sunday, September 9, 2012

(BLOOMFIELD) - A Linton woman is behind bars after being arrested Monday night after the Greene County Drug Task Force served a search warrant at her residence.

Carrie A. Eads, 27, made an initial appearance in Greene Superior Court by videoconference from the Greene County Jail on Wednesday.

Eads was formally charged on four counts: Dealing a Schedule IV controlled substance - a class C felony; possession of a legend drug - a class D felony; dealing in marijuana - a class A misdemeanor; and possession of marijuana - a class A misdemeanor.

Superior Court Judge Dena Martin appointed David Hunter as counsel for Eads.
Her bond was set at $16,000 with 10 percent allowed.

The court set a pre-trial conference for 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 22.

The case against Eads was filed after a Sept. 2 undercover drug buy was set up with a confidential informant (CI) who made arrangements to purchase marijuana and Alprazolam, a Schedule IV controlled substance.

The CI is alleged to have bought four blue-colored pills stamped Mylan A1 and two orange-colored pills stamped GG257 and a plastic bag of a green leafy substance that field tested positive as marijuana for $35 from Eads, according to the probable cause affidavit filed by Linton Police Officer Michael Watts, a member of the GC Drug Task Force.

Based on information that was obtained during the digitally audio recorded transaction with the CI that took place at 2897 North County Road 1350 West, Linton, officers were able to obtain a search warrant from Greene Superior Court for the residence.

When officers served the search warrant Monday evening, they found Eads and two minor-aged children along with David E. Lundy, according to the probable cause affidavit.

In a bedroom, police found all of the pre-recorded U.S. currency that was used in the controlled drug buy, Watts wrote in the affidavit.

Officers also found a bag containing marijuana along with a homemade smoking device, a white bottle containing nine orange pills, which were later identified as "Citalopram," a legend drug.

During an interview with police, Eads admitted that the controlled substances belonged to her.

"Carrie advised me that she had been selling drugs for approximately three months to make extra cash to pay her bills and support her children because she was not working," Watts wrote in the probable cause affidavit.

Eads allegedly told police during the interview that she sold drugs "2-3 times a week to various people."
