  • A Bastrop woman is in custody after being arrested Wednesday following a three-month drug investigation.
    Shelley Matthews made her initial court appearance Thursday before 4th District Court Judge Scott Leehy after being charged with selling drugs to undercover officers least six occasions.
    Court records filed in connection with the case state a reliable confidential informant working with the Northeast Louisiana Drug Enforcement Bureau made contact with Matthews on six different occasions and was wearing a device to record audio and video during each meeting.
    Arrest warrants issued in connection with the case indicate Matthews sold methamphetamine to the informant on three separate occasions and sold other drugs during three other meetings.
    Bond was set at $12,250 for each of the methamphetamine (Controlled Dangerous Susbstance-Schedule II) distribution charges and $5,000 each on counts of selling oxycodone (CDS-II), hydrocodone (CDS-III) and Xanax (CDS-IV) charges.
    She remains in custody at the Morehouse Parish Jail.
