Altus, OK – Woman accused of sending text about drugs to agent
ALTUS, Okla. (AP) A Mangum woman has been arrested for allegedly sending a text message about illegal drugs to a drug task force agent.
A warrant was issued for Mindy Neugebauer for possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a controlled drug with the intent to distribute. A Greer County jailer declined Wednesday to say whether Neugebauer was in custody.
Authorities say District III Drug Task Force agent Chris Counts received a text message that said, "if you want a hit of this stuff before it is all gone, you better get over here."
Counts sent a message asking for an address and determined that Neugebauer lived there. Officers say she thought she sent the message to a friend.
Authorities say they found a gun and a powdery substance during a search of the residence.
