Luie L. Booth, 47, is held in lieu of bonds totaling $204,000.

Heather R. Garcia, 32, is charged with aggravated trafficking in illegal drugs. Her bond is $100,000.
She has been declared indigent.
Preliminary hearing conferences for both defendants will be at 9 a.m. December 4.
A third defendant, Brandy M. Smock, 40, of Dibble is charged with conspiracy. She is free after posting a $25,000 bond.
Her preliminary hearing conference will be at 9 a.m. December 18.
According to an affidavit, two OBNDD agents and two McClain County sheriff’s deputies witnessed a confidential informant pay $375 to purchase 29.4 grams of methamphetamine from Booth in August.
Booth was seen by investigators leaving Smock’s residence before driving directly to the intersection of State Highways 39 and 76 where the alleged drug buy occurred.
Authorities served a search warrant at Booth’s home at 21222 Fir Lane on November 8, seizing approximately 485 grams of methamphetamine, two pistols, three long guns and $7,538 in cash.
Garcia was at the home when the warrant was served. She reportedly told the agent that she’d been at the residence for two nights, smoking meth and having sex with Booth, according the affidavit.
