Anna Michelle Lowe, 44, was additionally charged for the possession of schedule II and IV narcotics, and for crossing a guardline with illegal contraband.

A woman suspected of dealing methamphetamine in Coweta was arrested by sheriff’s investigators Wednesday, authorities said.

Investigators with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office Crime Suppression Unit arrested Anna Michelle Lowe, 44, around 1:15 p.m., said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office. Investigators received information that Lowe was dealing methamphetamine in the county, and with the help of a confidential informant, they set up a deal with Lowe.

According to Yarbrough, investigators met Lowe in the parking lot of DJ’s Grocery II on U.S. Highway 29 North — just inside the Coweta County line. When they approached her and identified themselves, Lowe dropped a baggie of suspected methamphetamine onto the floor, Yarbrough said. Lowe was taken into custody, read her Miranda rights and asked if she had any other contraband in her possession — after this, Lowe removed another baggie of suspected marijuana from her bra and handed it to investigators.

Lowe was charged for the possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, and she was transported to the Coweta County jail. Once inside the jail, however, more baggies containing narcotics were found in Lowe’s possession, Yarbrough said. These baggies contained hydromorphone, a schedule II narcotic, and alprazolam, a schedule IV narcotic.

Lowe was additionally charged for the possession of schedule II and IV narcotics, and for crossing a guardline with illegal contraband.
