Woman sentenced to prison on methamphetamine charge



NASHVILLE – A local woman charged with possession of methamphetamine entered a guilty plea to the allegation Wednesday in Howard County Circuit Court.
Betty Mowry, 45, was sentenced to four years in the Arkansas Department of Correction with two suspended and ordered to pay a drug assessment fee after entering the plea. According to court documents, the charge against her is the result of a traffic stop made in early May during which city officer Justin Garner observed a red pickup truck swerving over both sides of Johnson St. near the park just before 9:30 p.m.
Upon stopping the vehicle, Garner reportedly spoke with the driver, Aaron McGhee and the passenger, later identified as Mowry. According to Garner’s report, McGhee was shaking and Mowry, McGhee’s mother, was known as having multiple drug convictions. Garner requested a K9 unit be dispatched to search for narcotics.
Upon arrival, the police dog reportedly alerted to the presence of narcotics, and a woman’s wallet was allegedly found to contain suspected methamphetamine.
In unrelated court news, 36 year old Clifton Roberts entered a not guilty plea to a charge of possession of a controlled substance and was ordered to return to court Oct. 7.
