A Hickory woman was arrested Tuesday after a sting operation revealed she was selling methamphetamine, according to the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office.
Shannon Leigh Powell, 31, was arrested in the parking lot of a Bojangles' in Granite Falls and charged with felony possession with intent to sell/deliver methamphetamine.
Deputies said Powell had met with a known person at the restaurant with the intent to sell meth, and that $180 worth of the drug, packaged in two separate baggies, was confiscated during the sting.
Powell was also wanted by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police for larceny of a motor vehicle, and had a true bill of indictment stemming from an investigation by Long View Police where she had sold meth to an undercover officer, the official report states.
"We would not consider her to be a big time dealer but she is a repeat drug offender. Distributing any amount of meth is not being tolerated," Sheriff Alan C. Jones said of the arrest.
Powell was taken to the Caldwell County Detention Center and placed under a $30,000 secured bond on the Caldwell County drug charges and a $40,000 secured bond for the Catawba County charges.
Powell's bond for larceny of a motor vehicle is $10,000.
She has a first appearance in District Court in Lenoir on September 19, a first appearance in Catawba County on September 20, and a court date of October 2, in District Court in Charlotte.
