“Detectives have recently heard from several sources in the area that Shaw is trafficking large amounts of Methamphetamine.  We have heard from numerous sources Shaw is picking up more than a pound of Methamphetamine twice a week from [an] Hispanic source of supply out of Yakima,” a detective states in the court document.

A confidential informant reportedly told investigators that Shaw allegedly picks up two pounds of methamphetamine twice a week from her source, the affidavit says.

On Tuesday, Shaw allegedly went to Yakima and detectives began surveillance of the residence she resides at in the 1100 block of 16th Street in Clarkston.  They obtained a search warrant and as they were getting ready to serve it, Shaw left her residence.  An officer stopped her vehicle and it was searched.

“In Shaw’s wallet was small zip locks with prescription pills inside (oxycontin and oxycodone, hydrocodone, lorazapam).  I asked Shaw about the pills and [she] said they were her prescription pills but did not have a prescription bottle for them,” the detective states in the affidavit.

“In a purse behind the driver’s back seat I located a small carrying hand bag containing what appeared to be and later field tested positive for methamphetamine (108.6 grams),” the affidavit adds.

Meanwhile, when detectives searched the home, they allegedly discovered “a small amount of methamphetamine, a used methamphetamine pipe, packaging material, digital scale, and a large sum of money hidden in a wall safe,” according to the affidavit.
