A woman arrested during an 18-month long narcotics investigation entered a plea of guilty to drug possession and has been sentenced.
Pamela D. Doyle, one of five who were arrested March 18 on various drug charges, pleaded guilty to possession of a Schedule II CDS. She was sentenced to three years at hard labor, suspended, with three years of active supervised probation.
She must follow the conditions of probation and pay $1,000 in court costs.
Doyle was arrested when Webster Parish Sheriff’s narcotics agents were searching for Pamela Carden and Bobby G. Smith after reportedly making undercover buys from them.
Doyle and Charles Joyner were discovered at Carden’s residence, and during a search of her home, agents said they located a baggie of suspected methamphetamine inside the house. Agents discovered a glass pipe commonly associated with smoking methamphetamine underneath Joyner, deputies said at the time of their arrests.
Carden was arrested on the warrant and entered a plea of guilty in April to distribution of a Schedule II CDS. She was sentenced to five years in prison, suspended, with five years of active supervised probation.
Joyner was also arrested for the charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Joyner was in court Friday and entered a plea of guilty. He was sentenced to pay a fine of $50 plus court costs or serve five days in the Webster Parish Jail.
WPSO agents went to the home of James D. Rine to serve a warrant on Smith for possession of Schedule II CDS.
Rine was charged by the district attorney’s office with possession of Schedule II CDS, and entered a plea of guilty to an amended charge of possession of drug paraphernalia, according to court documents. He was sentenced to pay a fine of $200 plus court costs or serve 30 days in jail.
Smith is set for status conference Monday for the charge of distribution of a Schedule II CDS.
