She was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on April 30 and released the following day after posting $3,500 bail. read more

Oklahoma continues to struggle with a serious meth problem. The state is among the top in the nation for meth arrests, manufacture, and addiction, a distinction Oklahoma legislators and law enforcement would like to reduce. Despite programs such as the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services' (ODMHSAS) Oklahoma Methamphetamine Prevention Initiative (OMPI), meth abuse and manufacture continue to be a significant problem in the state. In 2011, law enforcement agents discovered 843 meth labs in the state, an 3 percent increase over the previous year. In Tulsa alone, officers discovered 429 meth labs, a staggering increase of 30 percent over 2010. With the ease of manufacturing meth through the one-pot method or "shake and bake" method, almost any location can be a meth lab. In fact, in December 2011, an Oklahoma woman was arrested after trying to cook meth inside a Tulsa Walmart, and yesterday, undercover drug agents in Purcell dismantled a meth lab discovered in a "porta-potty" in the middle of a golf course. read more
