A Clinton woman who was originally charged with a misdemeanor has had a felony charge levied against her after being discovered with methamphetamine inside the Custer County Detention Center.

According to a probable cause affidavit, 42-year-old Nancy Rue who was arrested for trespassing in early November, received the felony charge of bringing contraband into a jail or penal institution on December 27 after the jailer found a crystal-like substance on the defendant while performing a search.

That substance would later test positive to being meth.

The court document stated the jailer witnessed a small packet fall from Rue’s bra while she was changing into jail clothing. When asked about the meth, she would tell a Custer County Deputy that it wasn’t hers and that she didn’t know how it got there.

The meth was sent to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation for further analysis.

A preliminary hearing for Rue has been scheduled for January 28.
