Melissa Ann Shepard, 45, Linton, was taken into custody and booked in to the Greene County Jail on a preliminary charge of dealing in a controlled substance, a class B felony.
Gerald Leroy Thompson, also 45 and also from Linton, was taken into custody and booked in to the jail on preliminary charges of possession of a controlled substance, a class D felony, and driving while suspended with a prior conviction, a class A misdemeanor.
According to the police report, after Thompson left the scene of the meeting location where the alleged transaction took place, he was stopped for a traffic violation. When officers ran a check on his identification, his license returned as suspended with the prior.
Officers then questioned Thompson and said he confirmed their suspicions that he had purchased the pills from Shepard in the transaction they observed.
Shepard was located and placed under arrest.
The investigating officer was LPD Patrolman Brock Garrison. He was assisted by other officers from the Greene County Drug Task Force.
As of Monday, both Shepard and Thompson remained in jail where they were being held without bond pending initial court hearings.
