The TBI says as a result of the investigation, on Aug. 30, a Madison County Grand Jury also indicted 26-year-old Vanessa Onate-Umanzor.

The TBI says Umanzor was charged with sale and delivery of methamphetamine, and possession of methamphetamine with the intent to sell and deliver.

The TBI says Umanzor was in the Henderson County Jail on unrelated charges.
