Drug Task Force looking for woman selling drugs from home

INDEPENDENCE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

The 16th Judicial Task Force is looking for a Batesville woman who they say was dealing drugs out of her home.

A judge issued a warrant for Natalie Floyd’s arrest based on the evidence investigators reportedly found inside her home.

Investigators with the task force, Independence County Sheriff’s Department, and Batesville Police Department searched Floyd’s home.

Inside investigators found one pound of meth on the kitchen table and packaging material along with a loaded pistol and a small amount of marijuana.

They also found several smoking pipes on the table and another loaded pistol on top of the microwave.

Investigators searched the back bedroom and found a vacuum-sealed box in the closet with five pounds of crystal meth.

The meth was wrapped in plastic and black tape.

Investigators say they also found several small bags of crystal meth and prescription pill bottles laying around the house.

There were surveillance cameras and a police radio in the house. 

When police arrived at the residence, Floyd was not home at the time.

According to the affidavit, investigators knew drugs were being distributed from the home.
