Carbon woman arrested following investigation

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

Bobbi Jo Lovett
After a lengthy investigation, a Carbon woman was arrested for alleged drug-related charges Tuesday.

On Dec. 5, an arrest warrant was issued for Bobbi Jo Lovett, 48, by the Clay County Circuit Court because of a search of her home on Aug. 17.

Lovett allowed deputies of the Clay County Sheriff's Department to perform the search while investigating a case involving another unidentified individual. A small plastic bag with a white crystal substance inside and a glass pipe with a whitish residue inside were apparently discovered.

The items, which Lovett allegedly admitted were hers, later field-tested positive for methamphetamine.

K-9 Handler/Deputy Josh Clarke served the arrest warrant without incident at Lovett's home around 4:30 p.m., Tuesday.

Transported to the Clay County Justice Center, Lovett was booked in on a class B felony possession of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a public park in the town (punishable, if convicted, up to 20 years in jail with $10,000 in fines) and class A misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia (punishable, if convicted, up to 1 year in jail and $5,000 in fines).

A preliminary bond of $15,000 with 10 percent allowed was set in the matter.

Although Lovett appeared for formal arraignment proceedings Wednesday, jail officials confirmed she remained incarcerated awaiting further court proceedings.

Greencastles Finest maybe if you like crime and drugs.... if that is the case you should stay in greencastle and putnam county. Because Officers Clarke and Swearingen are taking out the trash in CLAY COUNTY! Forest and Dayk are great dogs and I hope they keep up the good work.

And by the way it states that clarke served the warrant. A warrant which I think is issued by the Prosecutors Office and signed by a judge. So get a clue greencastle!

And I hope that one of the "failures" track you down sometime so they can really show you what reality really is all about. And in clay county dirt bag druggies go to JAIL.

Fortunately for her, the time in prison will help her get clean. Hopefully she has enough smarts to stay clean.

Maybe it took that long for substance ID to be verified at crime lab??? I have heard that there is a back log at various labs. It's not like on TV when it all gets done in an hour.

Thank you for getting another druggie off the streets. Hopefully she will get help.

Jenny Moore,

If it takes so long for a field test then how if your in possession of something and driving you are arrested right then and there. I also agree with Ape1. The C.I. in this town committs more crimes than the ones she tells on.

Nascar fans,

yes it does take awhile sometimes to get the drugs back in the labs. So i think you need to get some more information about things before you go and say things

its easy to pass judgment on one when you dont have all the facts. and i find it hard to believe that if they found all that back in aug, and didnt arest her then and there.someting wrong with this story . sounds like a law suit to me.

i would just like to know who gave everybody the right to judge other people? i was raised to believe the only one to judge people is the man above.bobbi lovett is my mom and yes she may be an addict but that does not make her a bad person she is one of the most giving person most people would ever meet. and for everone who wants to call her a nark then why did i spend 3 1/2 years as a chid without my mom.i am the person i am today because of the mistakes she has made i dont do drugs and i am a great mom to my kids. i feel this is what my mom needed to finally get her life straight i wish it didnt have to be this way tho. but if shes ready to get clean i will be behind her 110 percent. dont be so quick to judge others. billy

I will pray for you and your family. How sad that the response you get from your commnity is so hateful! Keep on being a good mom. I hope your mom comes out sober and clean and you two can have a healthy relationship.

Shame on you angry people! Of course it's illegal, and I'm sure you've never broken the law by speeding or drinking and driving. If not, go ahead and throw rocks.

Good job CCSD for keeping the trash off the streets!

ur trash

I really dont think you should be saying that they are trash. The town of Brazil is full of druggies. So basically your saying Brazil is trash. So watch what YOU SAY!!!

-- Posted by nhs_babe_2011 on Fri, Dec 19, 2008, at 10:36 AM

Well then you said it yourself...Brazil is full of trash!

-- Posted by Pro Se on Fri, Dec 19, 2008, at 2:22 PM

They say the people you surround yourself with will say something about your character. For all these people who are ready to pass judgement on others I hope that they do not fall on the same fate of judges.

Everyone is always quick to say this town if full of "druggies" but I don't see anyone quick to actually fix the problem either. Incarcerating these people is not fixing the problem but more like sweeping the dirt under to rug. For those of you who don't know the dirt is still there whether or not you choose to see it is up to you. I would rather help those who want to be helped and leave the judgement to GOD!
