Woman receives probation in drug case
STANFORD - A Lincoln County woman received a probated prison sentence on drug charges, and an indictment against a co-defendant was dismissed last week in circuit court.
Rebecca Laswell, 45, of 4020 Angel Ridge Road, was sentenced to five years but was granted probation on charges of first-degree trafficking of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police searched the residence in April after they questioned the driver of a truck that had swerved off a road. While the driver was walking to the police cruiser, a bag of cocaine reportedly fell from his pocket. Police said the driver admitted the cocaine was bought from Laswell less than an hour earlier.
