A Sampson County woman was taken into custody at her home Monday following an investigation by drug agents, who allegedly found her in possession of pseudoephedrine, the key ingredient in the manufacture of methamphetamine.
Sherry Hope Sills, 45, of 1283 Savannah Hill Road, Dunn, was charged with five felony counts of possession of pseudoephedrine/prior meth conviction. She was arrested at her home on Monday afternoon, transported to the Sampson County Sheriff’s Office and placed under $10,000 secured bond for the charges.
The case was investigated by the Sheriff’s Office’s Special Investigations Division.
According to the N.C. Department of Public Safety, Sills has numerous convictions in Sampson and Harnett counties dating back to 2005, including multiple convictions of obtaining property by false pretenses, larceny, and forgery and uttering forged instrument.
The lone drug conviction on her N.C. record came in 2006, when she was given a suspended sentence for a felony possession of a Schedule II controlled substance offense in Harnett, court records show.
