MARION – A Marion woman was arrested Friday in connection with an illegal drug investigation in Marion.
According to Marion Police, the Marion Police Department Narcotics Unit arrested 32-year-old Lacy Wagner in the 700 block of Circle Drive and seized 115 grams of Crystal Ice Methamphetamine, 78 grams of Fentanyl, a vehicle and cash.
Police said an investigation into Wagner began in mid-2021, after a confidential source was used to conduct multiple controlled purchases of fentanyl. During that time, Wagner was arrested and found to be in possession of approximately one ounce of fentanyl. The investigation also revealed that Wagner’s supplier was in St. Louis, Mo. Wagner was arrested and released on bond in Williamson County for Manufacturing/Delivery of Fentanyl.
In mid-2022, the Narcotics Unit began purchasing the drug from Wagner within 500 feet of a park. After the execution of several warrants to track her movements, it was again determined that she was again traveling to St. Louis to purchase fentanyl.
After learning that Wagner was in St. Louis, the Narcotics Unit awaited her return to Marion. Upon her return she was arrested and charged with two counts of Delivery of Fentanyl within 500 feet of a Park, Possession of 100 to 400 grams of Methamphetamine with the Intent to Deliver and Possession of 15 to 100 grams of Fentanyl with the Intent to Deliver.
Wagner was transported to the Williamson County Jail where she will await future court proceedings.
