Accused of selling prescription drugs
Acting on a warrant, Webster Parish Sheriff's deputies have stopped a Minden woman from actively selling prescription drugs.
Angela Nicole Simmons, 23, of the 1100 block of East Street, was arrested and charged with distribution of a legend drug, distribution of Sch. II (Oxycontin), distribution of Sch. II (Alaprazolam) and distribution of Sch. II (Endocet).
According to Sheriff Gary Sexton, three of his deputies – Richard Stewart, George Salsberry and Wade Wells – tried to serve the warrants at a residence on Washington Street.
"When they made contact with the homeowner, they were told that Simmons was not at that residence," Sexton said. "She (homeowner) said she thought Simmons was at a friend's house in the Pine Hills trailer park."
The deputies reportedly found Simmons at that location and took her into custody. She was booked at the Webster Parish Courthouse and transferred to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center on bond amounts totaling $170,000.
