The Washington County Sheriff’s Office reported Christy Tregre, 44, and Tarah Bergeron, 32, both of Paradise, Louisiana, were staying in Panama City Beach when they made contact with an undercover Washington County investigator early Wednesday. The women set up plans to meet the officer to trade hydrocodone, also known as Lortab, for methamphetamine.
The undercover investigator met the suspects in Ebro, near the Ebro Motel, and made the exchange, after which the Drug Task Force closed in and arrested the women, according to a WCSO report. Further investigation found the women also in possession of hypodermic needles, a glass pipe and metal spoons, all containing methamphetamine residue.
Both women were booked into the Washington County Jail on charges of sale and/or delivery of opiates, possession of drug paraphernalia and use of a two-way communication device to facilitate a felony.
