BAXTER COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – A Flippin woman is back behind bars after officers found pills and drugs hidden in her jail uniform.

According to the Baxter County Sheriff's Office, Bethany Nicole Williams, 24, was released from jail on Sunday. Sheriff John Montgomery states Williams called the jail several hours later saying she had left a small container in her jail uniform and wanted to come get it.

Jail staff found the small plastic container in one of the pockets. Officers found eight Trazodone pills and one clear rock that tested for meth while searching the container, according to the sheriff.

Police say on Monday Williams returned to the jail and said the container was hers. She also tested positive for meth after her probation officer was called to the jail.

Williams was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and furnishing prohibited articles. Bond was set at $15,000 and she is expected to be in court on Thursday.
