FORREST CITY, AR - Another person has been charged in St. Francis County after being accused of transporting a large amount of illegal drugs.

Cheryl Taylor, 36, of Jennings, Missouri, was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver Wednesday after a Forrest City patrol officer said he found 50 packages of marijuana in her car the day before.

Earlier this week, State Police reported finding 50 bricks of cocaine in a car on Interstate 40 east of Forrest City.

Two women from New Mexico were charged in that incident.
