A Muldrow woman pleaded not guilty June 24 to a drug trafficking charge, an arrest report reveals.
Tabetha Scheel, 39, was also charged with unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and/or a fine of up to $1,000.
On June 16, a Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputy was assisting the U.S. Marshals Service in executing a federal arrest warrant at a home at 112517 S. 4770 Road. The warrant was for Kevin Leon King, who was arrested at the scene along with Scheel.
A search of the residence turned up a set of digital scales with a white crystal-like residue on it, as well as a small, cut plastic straw, a plastic bag filled with the white substance, which tested positive for methamphetamine. Deputies also found about $1,400 cash in a safe.
Scheel’s bond was set at $15,000 and her next court appearance is at 9 a.m. Aug. 12.
