Cape Girardeau woman faces 40 years on meth charges
A 30-year-old Cape Girardeau woman is facing four felonies for allegedly selling meth to an undercover police officer, charges that carry a maximum prison sentence of more than 40 years.
Alisha Gills, 30, was arrested Tuesday on two felony counts of distribution of a controlled substance, one count for possession and a fourth for delivery of an imitation controlled substance. Gills remained in custody at the Cape Girardeau County Jail in lieu of $45,000 bond. Gills, according to court filings, has yet to hire a lawyer or have a court date set, though her arraignment will likely happen Monday.
According to a police probable-cause statement, Gills sold methamphetamine three times to Sgt. Jeffrey Heath, who prepared the statement. On another occasion, Gills sold him phony meth, which is what prompted the imitation charges.
