A Marion County woman, 33-year-old Kelley Nicole Moore of Flippin, has been arrested and charged with a Class Y felony count of introducing a controlled substance into the body of another. Class Y felonies are the most serious classification of crime in Arkansas not punishable by death.

According to the probable cause affidavit, a Marion County Sheriff’s deputy accompanied a family social worker from the Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS) to Moore’s residence along Marion County 6002 in late October.

Moore did not answer the door of the residence, and a note on the door advised she was in Texas. The officer noted observing the home’s electric meter had sawzall blades in place to illegally receive power to the residence.

The social worker made contact with Moore at the Arkansas Community Corrections office in Mountain Home. A probation officer advised Moore allegedly tested positive for amphetamines, marijuana and hydrocodone in the past four weeks.

A juvenile who was reportedly in a separate room when Moore says she used illegal drugs at her next-door neighbor’s was taken by DHS officials for a drug screening. The relationship with Moore and the juvenile is not provided in the affidavit.

The results of the juvenile’s drug screening were positive for methamphetamine, amphetamine and cannabinoids.

Moore’s bond was set at $20,000.
