The task force conducted a narcotics distribution investigation into Erica Lynne Crowson, of St. George, task force Detective Jim Jessop said in a probable cause statement supporting the arrest.

During the course of the three-month investigation, the task force conducted a controlled buy of methamphetamine on three separate occasions in St. George through the use of a confidential informant who purchased meth from Crowson, the statement said.

Crowson was arrested and booked into the Washington County Purgatory Correctional Facility.

She was charged with three second-degree felonies for drug distribution. Her bail for release pending trial stands at $30,000.

Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
