A woman who allegedly sold Columbus Drug Task Force agents methamphetamine faced charges Thursday morning in Recorders Court.
Sarah Phillips, 26, was already on probation for a meth charge when agents began investigating her. She faced three counts of possession of marijuana, two counts of use of communication facility in committing crime and possession of drug related objects during her preliminary hearing.
A Drug Task Force agent told the court police set up an undercover rendezvous with Phillips twice — once in January, at a 4820 Armour Road shopping center, and again in February, at a Manchester Expressway gas station. Both times, an agent bought and confiscated a collective 2.4 grams of meth.
Phillips was let go in these first two meetings, but was stopped and searched as she was leaving a probation meeting on March 6. That search led to the discovery of 2 grams of meth, and Phillips' arrest.
Phillips was arrested again for her hearing on Wednesday at her home on St. Francis Avenue.
The total amount of meth recovered from Phillips was valued at $440. All of Phillips' drug transactions with agents were filmed and recorded, and the conversations she had by phone to set up the sales have been recorded and entered into evidence.
Judge Michael Cielinski set Phillips' bond at $41,000. Her case will be forwarded to Muscogee County Superior Court.
