Picayune Women Charged In Drug Sting

Two Picayune women face charges after being accused of selling prescription drugs to undercover agents.

Barbara Davis, 53, was charged with two counts of sale of a controlled substance within 1,500 feet of a church and two counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.

Elizabeth Staples, 24, was charged with two counts of conspiracy to sell a controlled substance within 1,500 feet of a church and possession.

Davis was being held Friday on $120,000 bond. Staples was freed on $10,000 bond after her arrest Wednesday.

Investigators executed a search warrant after an undercover agent purchased Xanax and Lortab from Davis' residence during the three-month investigation, Police Chief Brenda Smith said.

During the search, records of previous drug transactions, along with additional amounts of Xanax and Lortab that police believe were to be sold, were recovered, Smith said.
