Police were called out to a Dollar General store because of a third person in the store who’d been told not to come back. The employee asked deputies to also trespass Willis and Baggs from the store,too, because they were waiting for the third person.

All three were suspected of shoplifting from the Dollar General.

After a pat down by officers, one deputy found wet coffee filters in a plastic bag in Willis’ pocket. Another deputy, a member of the sheriff’s office methamphetamine response unit, recognized that the filters were probably used to help make ‘one pot meth.’

The filters tested positive for meth.

Deputies found several syringes on Baggs that she claimed she used to ‘inject pills.’

Both were then arrested without incident.

While in the back of the patrol car, both suspects could be seen fidgeting around.

When police arrived at the sally port of the jail, they found 3 syringes shoved in the back seat of their patrol car.

The syringes tested positive for morphine.

Baggs is being held on a $3,516 bond and Willis is being held on a $4,520 bond.
