PORTALES -- Latisha Shipley, 27, was sentenced to serve two years in the New Mexico Department of Corrections for Possession with the Intent to Traffic Methamphetamine in August of this year.

Through an investigation, Portales Police Officers learned that Shipley had been selling methamphetamine, and confronted her on the Eastern New Mexico University campus where she was a student at the time.  Shipley admitted to officers that she did in fact sell methamphetamine and produced two baggies of methamphetamine packaged for sale.  Phone records also indicated that Shipley was involved in the sale of methamphetamine. 

Shipley will serve an additional five years of intensively supervised probation and parole after she serves her two year sentence.
