Purdom was arrested for trafficking heroin, trafficking methamphetamine, unlawful possession of controlled substances, first-degree unlawful possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He is held on a $2,000 bond. The sheriff’s office explains that the bond is set to this excess because of Purdom’s “extensive” history in illegal drug activity.

Sheriff’s office deputies also obtained a warrant against Tiffany Nation (see picture) for offenses of trafficking heroin, trafficking methamphetamine, three counts of unlawful possession of controlled substances, second-degree unlawful possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Nation was arrested in connection to the narcotics investigation.

Her bond amount has not been released at this time.
