A Catoosa County woman is facing multiple drug charges after complaints led detectives her home where she was discovered to be an alleged drug dealer, police say.

According to the Catoosa County Sheriff's Department:

Heddy Edna Hubbard, 56, of 83 Hilltop Road in Ringgold was arrested Aug. 23 on charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, trafficking in cocaine, possession of tools for the commission of a crime, possession of marijuana less than one-ounce, and probation violation of her financial identity fraud conviction. Her bond was set at $11,000.

Just after 1:25 p.m. on Aug. 23, detectives visited Hubbard's mobile home to investigate possible drug activity.

Detective Alan Miles says officers asked for and were granted permission into Hubbard's home, at which time they found multiple drugs and an abundance of drug-related materials.

"A black purse laying on the bed contained two plastic bags of clear crystalline solid, numerous small plastic zip-top bags, glass smoking devices commonly used for smoking methamphetamine, a digital scale, two metal marijuana grinders, and a plastic bag containing a green, leafy material recognized as marijuana," Miles said.

Metal measuring spoons, sealed straws containing drugs, and additional digital scales were also found in the bedroom.

Miles says Hubbard also agreed to let him to look through her cell phone where he found information related to her drug business.

"I read one message of numerous messages," Miles said. "The one message contained information related to drug sales."

Detectives gathered the phone and drug paraphernalia as evidence and transported Hubbard to jail without incident.
