A Mountain Home woman pled guilty Monday to charges stemming from her possession of a small bag of methamphetamine in the Baxter County Court Complex in late April.

Fifty-five-year-old Georgia Waldo appeared during a session of Baxter County Circuit Court.

She was put on probation for four years. Waldo had initially been set for a jury trial this month.

A Mountain Home police officer responded to the complex after getting a report that a female attending juvenile court was in possession of methamphetamine.

Waldo was detained by officers working security at the complex, after one of them learned she was in the building. According to the probable cause affidavit, he was aware she had an active arrest warrant.

After being detained, she was asked if she had anything illegal concealed on her person.

She is reported to have pulled out a clear plastic bag containing almost 5 grams of what she admitted was methamphetamine.
