SPRINGHILL — Four people were arrested on distribution charges following undercover buys of prescription pills, Springhill chief of police Will Lynd said.
Donna Mosley, 57, of the 200 block of 7th Street SW in Springhill, was arrested on one count of distribution of Schedule II CDS (amphetamines). Bond was set at $75,000.
Andy Scott Graves, of the same address, was arrested on one count of distribution of Schedule II CDS (amphetamines). Bond was set at $75,000.
Cherish Jery Mosley, 28, of the same address, was charged with distribution of Schedule II CDS (amphetamine). Bond was set at $75,000.
Willie Ray Judgware, 47, of the 100 block of 7th Street SW in Springhill, was charged with two counts of distribution of Schedule I CDS (marijuana). Bond was set at $60,000.
Springhill detective Ronald Wedgeworth and Webster Parish Sheriff’s narcotics agent Lt. Shawn Baker made contact with Donna Mosley and Graves at the 7th Street address.
According to the police report, agents made undercover buys of prescription pills from the two.
“They were separate purchases done by (agents),” Lynd said. “Amphetamines are the ones prescribed when they go to the doctor to lose weight. It curbs the appetite and speeds up their metabolism.”
Baker says they received information on the four that they were selling prescription pills, which prompted the four-month investigation.
“When they (Cherish Mosley and Judgware) showed up for court, we arrested them there,” he said.
“All three of them were living in the house, and Mr. Graves was staying there with them in the house. We made buys on those three individuals out of that house.”
Donna Mosley and Graves were arrested at their residence on Tuesday, Oct. 13. Cherish Mosley and Judgware were arrested in Ward II court in Springhill on Oct. 7. The two were in court that day on unrelated charges, Baker said.
Warrants for their arrests were obtained, and the four were taken into custody. They were transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center following their arrests.
