Two Clinton women were arrested on drug and criminal conspiracy charges after one of them allegedly delivered $200 worth of pills to a confidential informant at a Gitâ€™n Go on Clinch Avenue on Wednesday night, authorities said.
Undercover officers had arranged to buy the prescription narcotics from Christy Charlene Seviers, 39, of Clinton, an Anderson County Sheriffâ€™s Department report said. Seviers allegedly needed the money from the sale of the 15 pills to finance a trip to a pain clinic in Manchester, Tenn.
An undercover officer gave Seivers the money at Burger King on South Charles G. Seivers Boulevard, and authorities followed her and Brandy Michelle Lindsay, 33, as well as two unnamed men, to the pain clinic in Manchester, the report said.
When they returned, Seivers allegedly called Anderson County Sheriffâ€™s Department Sgt. Jim Leinart and arranged to meet him at the Gitâ€™n Go, said the report, written by Investigator Roger G. Day.
Seivers arrived at about 11:40 p.m. and gave the pills to the confidential informant, the report said.
While there, however, Lindsay spotted an undercover officer and warned others, including Seivers, of his presence, the report said. Lindsay allegedly told the others to leave.
But it was apparently too late. Day said he and a handful of other officers “made contact” with the defendants.
His report said Seivers told him she needed to sell the pills because â€œshe needed the money.â€
It also alleged that Lindsay knew Seivers was selling the narcotics.
The incident report said authorities seized seven morphine and six roxycodone pills.
Seivers and Lindsay were charged with criminal conspiracy, violating a drug-free school zone, and manufacturing, delivering, selling, or possessing a controlled substance. The Gitâ€™n Go gas station is within 1,000 feet of South Clinton Elementary School.
Seivers was also charged with violation of community corrections.
Both remained jailed in the Anderson County Detention Facility on Friday evening.
