The Harlan Daily Enterprise reports
A Cumberland woman has been indicted on charges including possession of methamphetamine and tampering with evidence.

Betty D. Addington, 32, was arrested on a pair of indictment warrants by Harlan County Sheriff’s Deputy Philip Ely on Wednesday.

The indictment handed down by the grand jury on July 19, stems from Addington’s arrest in April by Cumberland City Police Chief Cody Williamson.

The three-count indictment states Addington was in possession of methamphetamine on April 25, as well as being in possession of drug paraphernalia. The indictment also states Addington operated a motor vehicle on a highway without an operator’s license.
