A Springfield woman is accused of selling narcotics within proximity of a child, according to a criminal affidavit.
Taylor Chiles, 25, was charged in Clark County Municipal Court with endangering children. She pleaded not guilty and her bond was set at $5,000.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office began their investigation when they were contacted by the Adult Parole Authority, according to the affidavit. They said a man was due for a parole violation hearing and he was suspected of selling drugs out of a home on East Street home.
The man was detained and members of the parole authority advised they were going to the home for a parole search, the affidavit says. The search found a bullet and numerous rubber gloves in the residence.
“She then sent me a photograph of a black digital scale with white powder residue on it,” the affidavit says. “Through my training and experience, I have found a combination of rubber gloves and digital scales to be consistent with the trafficking of fentanyl.”
The detective also received photos of a plastic bag of white powder, one containing blue pills and another containing green Xanax tablets, according to the affidavit. The items were located in a gold colored purse that had Chiles name on several medication bottles, the affidavit says.
“When interviewed … Ms. Chiles admitted to selling illegal narcotics, however, would not indicate what type of narcotics,” the affidavit says.
A next court date in the case had not been set.
