A wanted woman who fled custody in Red Boiling Springs last weekend, was captured by local law enforcement and found to have approximately 488 grams of methamphetamine, along with other drugs, inside her residence.
According to Deputy Josh Meador of the Macon County Sheriff’s Department, officers arrived at 215 Landy Lane, the home of 54-year-old Constance (‘Connie’) and 53-year-old Charles Porter, who had active warrants out for violating their state probation.
When deputies arrived, they located Connie and she was taken into custody and put inside of a patrol car.
When officers went inside the residence to look for Charles, however, she was somehow able to escape.
Additional officers were called to the scene to help locate Connie, who was apprehended without incident roughly seven hours later on Witcher Hollow Rd.
The Porter home was searched by authorities, who discovered a compartment in the floor that contained approximately 488 grams of methamphetamine inside 17 baggies, hallucinogenic mushrooms, marijuana, digital scales, empty baggies and approximately $2,000 in cash.
Red Boiling Springs police also assisted in the case.
Connie and Charles Porter were on state probation for the sale of methamphetamine. They are being held without bond, and their case will be presented to a grand jury.
