Yearlong probe nets drug arrest


Follow The Republic:


A yearlong investigation into the sale of cocaine has led to the arrest of a Columbus woman, police said.

Cindy Lee Stevenson, 29, was arrested on a Bartholomew County warrant for two Class B felony counts of dealing in cocaine. Her arrest occurred just before 11 p.m. Tuesday at an apartment in the 2200 block of Applegate Drive on the city’s east side.

Stevenson’s arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by narcotics detectives with the Columbus Police Department, department spokesman Lt. Matt Myers said in a news release.

Myers said narcotics detectives were able to make multiple undercover purchases of cocaine from Stevenson during the past year.

Stevenson was booked into the Bartholomew County Jail and was being held on $150,000 bond Wednesday pending her initial hearing.

If charged and convicted, Stevenson could face six to 20 years in prison for each Class B felony charge.

The office of Prosecutor Bill Nash will determine what, if any, charges will be filed.
