FARMINGTON -- A woman charged with three first-degree felonies for selling a pound of methamphetamine was released from jail on bail even though she has three pending felony cases in Weber and Davis courts.
Jacquiline Jean Randall, 34, and Lorin Davison Fiene, 40, were arrested by the Davis Metro Narcotic Strike Force on Tuesday after officers found a pound of meth, as well as morphine, oxycodone, marijuana and a large amount of cash in their home in Layton.
Both appeared in 2nd District Court on Wednesday and were charged with three counts of first-degree felony distribution of methamphetamine, one count of second-degree felony possession of oxycodone, one count of class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana and one count of class B misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. The pair lived in a house 800 feet away from a church, which enhanced the charges because it is a drug-free zone, according to court documents.
The Davis County Attorney's Office had filed a motion to have Randall held in Davis County Jail without bail, but Judge David Connors on Wednesday set bail for $50,000.
Fiene is being held in the Davis County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
Court hearings have been set for both on Oct. 12.
Deputy Davis County Attorney Rick Westmoreland said a pound of meth is worth about $20,000 on the street.
About Randall's release from jail, "it's frustrating, especially when there's a felony on felony and a high amount of drugs involved."
Randall has two pending cases in 2nd District Court in Ogden and one case pending in Farmington, according to court documents.
She pleaded guilty July 31 in Ogden to third-degree felony possession of a controlled substance, according to the court website. A sentencing hearing has been set for Oct. 9 in Ogden.
In the second Ogden case, she has been charged with two counts of third-degree felony receiving stolen property and two counts of class A misdemeanor theft by receiving stolen property. According to court documents, Randall was seen on a surveillence tape dated May 17 pulling a trailer with ATVs stolen in Clearfield and Layton into a storage unit in Weber County. A preliminary hearing has been set for Oct. 9 in Ogden.
She was also arrested by Davis County Sheriff's Office on April 22. After she was pulled over for a traffic violation, a drug dog indicated drugs were in the car, and Randall admitted to having marijuana. Officers searched her car and found meth and Xanax, according to a probable cause statement. She is charged with third-degree felony possession of methamphetamine, as well as possession of Xanax, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving on a suspended or revoked license and operating a vehicle without an ignition interlock system, all class B misdemeanors. A pretrial conference for this case has been set for Sept. 27 in Farmington.
