A recent complaint relayed to authorities through 911 led to the arrest of a Douglas woman who drug agents say was caught red-handed near a local park.

Agents with the Douglas - Coffee Drug Unit (DCDU) reported Monday that on July 21 Douglas police officers encountered two individuals sitting in a public park on S. Gaskin Ave. after Coffee 911 received a complaint of these individuals possibly selling narcotics.  

Following a brief investigation, 40-year-old Amy Lynn Dotter was allegedly found to be in possession of cocaine and OxyContin tablets, and she was subsequently arrested for possession of cocaine and possession of a scheduled controlled substance.
