Two Scottsburg residents are facing methamphetamine charges after police said they sold drugs to an undercover informant.
Suzanna L. Matthews, 24, and Douglas G. Stacy Jr., 26, both face two charges of dealing meth and conspiracy to deal meth, which are Class B felonies.
According to court records, a confidential informant went to police after Matthews sent a message over Facebook about having meth for sale.
Police set up two controlled buys where they exchanged $180 for 1.3 grams of meth and $350 for 1.6 grams of meth, according to police. Matthews and Stacy were both present at the deals, police said.
After the second deal, police initiated a traffic stop of the vehicle and found a small bag containing meth and the money that had just been used in the deal, according to the probable cause affidavit. Stacy denied he had any meth in the vehicle.
Matthews is being held on a $30,000 surety bond. During his initial hearing Wednesday, Stacy was placed on a 15-day hold because he was on parole at the time of his arrest. After the 15 days, he will be held on a $50,000 cash bond.
