A Baxter County woman is behind bars on felony drug charges after police made two controlled methamphetamine buys from her.

She is charged with two felony counts of delivery of methamphetamine and two felony counts of unlawful use of a communication device for setting up the drug purchases on a cell phone.

Guillen is being held in lieu of a $15,000 bond.

She will appear in circuit court on Jan. 12.
