Hewitt police say a woman they say was in possession of a small amount of methamphetamine is facing a higher level charge after claiming to be a DEA agent.
Hewitt PD spokesman Tuck Saunders said officers had stopped Kelly Dyan Coker in the 700 block of Sun Valley.
They found less than less than a gram of meth which would have been a state jail charge.
But following the claim of being a DEA employee, the charges were bumped up to being a third degree level felony.
Coker was booked into the McLennan County Jail Monday night and has since posted bond and been released.
Jail records indicated the possession charge had a $2000 bond and the impersonation of a public servant charge has a $3000 bond.
