SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Police arrested a woman Monday afternoon for possessing small amounts of crystal meth, marijuana and prescription pills. Jody Campbell, 44, of Sheridan, also had $3,100 cash with her when she was taken into custody. Sheridan Police Lt. Chris Dahmke said Campbell was the passenger in a vehicle driven by Brian Carpenter, 33, also of Sheridan. An SPD officer saw Campbell driving down North Gould Street Monday and knew from previous contact with Carpenter that his driver’s license was suspended. Dahmke said when the traffic stop was initiated, Campbell attempted to leave the scene of the crime, and a subsequent search turned up the drugs and money.
Campbell pleaded not guilty in Sheridan County Circuit Court Tuesday to four misdemeanor charges of interference with a police officer and possession of controlled substances in crystal, plant and pill form.
Judge Shelley Cundiff assigned Campbell with a $5,000 cash only bond, which had not been posted as of Wednesday morning.
If Campbell posts bond, she will be required to lead a law-abiding life and not visit bars. Campbell’s next court appearance has not yet been scheduled. Carpenter, who had $540 in cash on him when he was arrested, also appeared in court Tuesday and pleaded guilty to driving while his license was suspended. Carpenter was fined $240.
