BONO, AR (KAIT) - A Bono woman, who police say had five pounds of meth delivered to the wrong house, had her first court appearance Monday.

Rosey Snyder appeared in Craighead County District Court before Judge David Boling Monday afternoon. A probable cause affidavit details what happened to land Snyder in jail.

A Bono man called police Friday after a "strange package" showed up on his doorstep in the 100-block of Crystal Street.

The man told police he went outside to smoke when he noticed a large package on his front porch with his wife's name on it.

"He assumed his wife had ordered something online and opened the package to see what was inside," the affidavit states.

The man said he contacted police because the contents didn't look right.

Detective Jordon Kennedy found a Tupperware container full of clear, crystal-like substance and a cookie sheet of what looked like THC resin. Officer Jeff McGinnis was then called to the scene, and field tested the substance, which showed positive for methamphetamine.

Court documents state there were five pounds of meth inside the package.

Officers later determined the package should have been delivered to Rosey Snyder who lived in the house next door.

Police took the package back to the Bono Police Department, located inside Bono City Hall, and photographed and repackaged the contents.

Officers then called Snyder's father and told him a package addressed to his daughter's house had been dropped off at city hall.

Shortly after 3 p.m., Snyder arrived at Bono City Hall and asked for the package.

When Kassandra Dunivan handed Snyder the package, she asked if Snyder knew Kelly Smith.

Snyder said Smith was her cousin who used to live with her. She then walked out of city hall where she was immediately placed under arrest.

She was charged with felony trafficking a controlled substance, felony possession of drug paraphernalia, and misdemeanor possession of a schedule VI substance.

If convicted on trafficking charges, Snyder could face 10 to 40 years or life in prison.

Snyder's bond was set at $75,000. She is scheduled to appear in court again on May 30.
