Chasity Dawn Malicoat (CCSO)

CCSO: Woman arrested on drug charges

The Campbell County Sheriff’s Office arrested an absent-minded woman last week on drug charges, including introducing contraband into the jail.

According to a CCSO press release, Deputy Preston Mullins was patrolling in Jellico last Wednesday, December 8th, when he spotted a woman identified as Chasity Dawn Malicoat at the Shell gas station. According to the release, Mullins knew Malicoat had an active warrant for her arrest, and pulled the vehicle over.  After making contact with the vehicle occupants, Mullins had a K-9 officer perform an open-air sniff, which resulted in the dog “quickly” alerting to the presence of drugs. 

During the ensuing search of the vehicle, a pre-loaded hypodermic needle containing what is believed to be meth was discovered, as well as a pack of Narcan, a Suboxone pill, digital scales, and multiple pipes were found.

Chasity Malicoat was placed under arrest and transported to the Campbell County Jail, where she told deputies that she was not in possession of any contraband. However, during her intake search, jailers discovered multiple baggies of what is believed to be meth and heroin hidden in the waistband of her underwear.

According to the release, when asked about the drugs found in her underwear, Malicoat replied, “I forgot that I had that.”

  1. God I prayed you would take care of this and you did just that. You knew she was worthy of saving just bc someone goes down the wrong path doesnt mean not to go look for them Just because the devil takes ahold of someone doesn’t mean God will give up and not fight for this person if he knows this person is worth saving if he knows this person has many more years of life left and 2 kids that live her more than anything!.. The few months she had to spend in jail just may have saved her life and someone else’s life as well. So for the ones that did say a prayer for the ones addicted and lost in life as well as their families also Thank You!! For the ones that laughed and said wasn’t any hope for her she was a waste The Joke Is On You!!! God saved this one he knew she was worthy but for the ones who set and judge instead of not praying for her I Hope God will have mercy on you as he did this young lady as well!!!!
