An Evansville woman is in the Daviess County Jail following a drug investigation by Washington City Police. Jessie L. Zigler, 30, Evansville, was arrested on a warrant out of Daviess Superior Court charging her with level two felony dealing in methamphetamine.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed in Daviess Superior Court, Washington Police used a confidential informant to make a deal with Zigler on March 27. Detective Brandon Garland said the informant received a text from Zigler that read “making a trip, U need a ticket." Police say that was code asking if the informant wanted to purchase some meth. During the exchange police report an agreement was made to purchase one-half ounce of methamphetamine for $500.

The court document says that when Zigler made it to Washington she contacted the informant to have him meet her at Southview Trailer Court. Police say they gave the informant $500 in cash to make the deal. That deal, including the exchange of money and weighing the drugs on a digital scale, was carried out in Zigler’s vehicle and was caught on video.

In the charging information police allege the methamphetamine that was sold was very pure and weighed 13.5 grams.

Under Indiana law, methamphetamine sales over 10 grams raise the offense to a level 2 felony.

A level two felony carries a sentence ranging from 10 to 30 years in prison.

Zigler is being held in the Daviess County Jail on $100,000 bond.
