MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A woman who allegedly sold crack-cocaine to a confidential informant in December 2012 was arrested and charged Tuesday.

On December 10, 2012, a confidential informant met 28-year-old Kingstree resident Shirlena Celesta Epps, also known as "Shorty," at a hotel in the 500 block of North Ocean Boulevard, according to a report from the Drug Enforcement Unit. The informant gave her $60 and received suspected crack cocaine.

The substance tested positive for crack cocaine at the DEU Conway office, the report states.

At about 3:45 p.m. Tuesday, Epps was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center for manufacturing and/or possessing a drug with intent to distribute. Bail has not yet been set.
