BAXTER COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – A Gamaliel woman is behind bars after investigators with the Baxter County Sheriff's Office catch her in the act.

According Sheriff John Montgomery, a person helping out investigators arranged controlled buys of methamphetamine from Kaitlyn Marie Johnston.

The person bought meth from Johnston, 20, on two separate occasions in July. Johnston sold total of 4.5 grams of methamphetamines for about $360 dollars.

Johnston sold the drugs on the phone and investigators recorded the calls.

A bench warrant was issued for Johnston and she was taken to the Baxter County Detention Center on two felony charges for delivery of methamphetamine and unlawful use of communications device.

She was released from custody after she posted a $25,000 bond.

She is set to appear in court October 24.
