(SHOALS) – The Martin County Sheriff’s Department conducted a drug interdiction operation at the Martin County Security Center.
On Sunday, February 21, the jail staff received word that 37-year-old Ashley Green, of Terre Haute, had arranged for the delivery of illegal drugs into the facility during visitation.
During the visitation hours, a plain-clothed officer recovered a small unknown article that was concealed in the visitation area.
That article contained suspected suboxone and a small clear plastic bag containing 3 grams of crystal meth.
Green was arrested without incident on charges of dealing meth, dealing in a Schedule III controlled substance, possession of meth, and possession of a controlled substance.
Later that evening, a search warrant for Green’s minivan was granted, and approximately 27 grams of meth was found in her vehicle. The search led to additional charges of dealing meth, possession of meth, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
