County: Oklahoma

Disposition: Alleged

Alleged: Pamela Sue Lacy

A Guthrie woman, 42, was arrested in Edmond on complaints of drug possession with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a park and cruelty to animals, police said.

On Friday, Edmond Police Officer Jason Roach was dispatched to a home located west of downtown near Penick Park in reference to a stolen gun report, according to a report filed by Roach. Dispatch advised the officer that one of the suspects in question is addicted to meth, police said.

When the officer arrived, he spoke with Pamela Sue Lacy, 42, of Guthrie, about the stolen gun, police said. The suspect said she did not steal the gun and said she has not been inside the home where it was located, police said.

The officer noticed the suspect had four dogs in the vehicle with her. They appeared to be extremely malnourished and had lost most of their hair, police said.

After the suspect exited the vehicle, another officer observed her take something out of her pocket and throw it on the ground, police said. She immediately stepped on what she had dropped, trying to hide it, police said. The officer placed the suspect under investigative detention.

Roach picked up the item, a small plastic bag inside of a larger plastic bag that had blood on it, police said. The small baggie appeared to contain meth, police said. The suspect was placed under arrest.

Inside the vehicle, police found three small plastic baggies, scissors, a metal spoon, a syringe, a knife and a bottle of Seroquel (quetiapine fumarate), police said. Other items included a digital scale that was in the suspect's purse and a bottle containing a Xanax pill.

The baggie containing meth, a baggie containing meth residue, the pill believed to be Xanax and two cigarette filters were sent to the OSBI for analysis, police said. Police said the park was about 500 feet away from the suspect's location.

The suspect was arrested on complaints of possession of drug sale/manufacture (meth), possession of drugs (Xanax), possession of drug paraphernalia and four counts of animal cruelty.

Animal welfare came and took possession of the four dogs, which were taken to a veterinarian to have their medical needs assessed, police said.

On Monday, Lacy's bond was set at $25,000, according to court records. On Thursday, prosecutors filed criminal probable cause in Oklahoma County District Court. An affidavit finding of probable cause was approved.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Lacy was incarcerated in the Oklahoma County jail.
