JAIL INMATE FACES NEW CHARGES FOR CONCEALING DRUGS

Theresa Marie Pate

    

      A Baxter County Jail Inmate, 52 years old THERESA MARIE PATE of Mountain Home, was charged today with three additional felony crimes after a Jail Matron found controlled substance hidden on THERESA PATE during a strip search.

     THERESA PATE was initially arrested by the Mountain Home Police Department on January 23rd on misdemeanor warrants for non-payment of fines and probation violation.  She was transported to the Detention Center for booking. 

     As part of the booking process, prior to being incarcerated in the housing unit, PATE was subjected to a strip search for weapons and contraband by a Jail Matron.  During this search, the Jail Matron suspected PATE to be concealing contraband within her body because she refused to satisfactorily following instructions being given to her in the course of the search. 

     Eventually, the Jail Matron observed a small metal object drop to the floor that PATE had been concealing.  This was seen to be an “Altoids” mint box.  Contained inside were two pills determined to be morphine, a schedule II controlled substance.

     THERESA MARIE PATE today was charged additionally by bench warrant as follows:

Possession of Schedule II Controlled Substance – Felony Furnishing Prohibited Articles – Felony Possession of Drug Paraphernalia – Felony

     Bond for these charges has not yet been set, but she continues to be held without bond on the previous probation violation hold and has a bond of $4,535.00 on the non-payment of fines charge.

/s/ John F. Montgomery,
Baxter County Sheriff
