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.
