A drug investigation resulted in the arrest of three persons on Thursday, Aug. 29. According to court documents, officers of the Mid-Mo Drug Task Force received a tip considered reliable of someone allegedly going from Eldon to California to pick up a large amount of methamphetamine.
The officers acted on this tip and allegedly set up an undercover drug buy with Crystal Anne Holder, 33, Eldon. They allegedly arranged to meet her at a local fast food business on Business 50 to buy the drugs.
Shortly after Holder arrived at the business, she is alleged to have told the undercover officer the drugs were to arrive in a maroon car, which would meet them behind a different business a few blocks east.
As the suspect vehicles arrived, officers of the Drug Task Force and the California Police Department converged on the scene.
Taken into custody were Jessica D. Fisher, 35, California, and Joshua A. Schollmeyer, 26, from one vehicle in which they had a pre-teen child. Holder, in a separate vehicle, was also arrested.
Fisher and Schollmeyer were each charged with Class B Felony Distribution, Delivery, Manufacture, Produce or Attempt to or Possess with Intent to Distribute, Deliver, Manufacture, Produce a Controlled Substance and Class C Felony Endangering Welfare of a Child in the first degree.
Holder was charged with Class B Felony Distribution, Delivery, Manufacture, Produce or Attempt to or Possess with Intent to Distribute, Deliver, Manufacture, Produce a Controlled Substance and Class C Felony Possession of Controlled Substance except 35 grams or less of marijuana.
She also was charged, on Sept. 4, with Class C Felony Tampering with a Motor Vehicle in the first degree for allegedly taking without permission the vehicle in which she was arrested on Aug. 29.
If convicted on the Class B Felony charges, each could face up 5-15 years in prison. If convicted on the Class C Felony charges, each could face up to seven years in prison and a $5,000 fine on each charge.
Bond has been set at $50,000 for Fisher and $30,000 for Schollmeyer. Bond for Holder has been set at $75,000 on the drug related charge and $25,000 on the tampering charge. Holder is currently facing drug charges in another county.
