HEWITT, Texas (KWTX) A Waco woman and a man from West were in county jail Wednesday after a Hewitt police arrested them after they tried to sell drugs to an undercover officer.

Misha Kelly Sommerfeld, 22, of Waco, and Camden Christopher Ferguson both were in custody Wednesday in the McLennan County Jail, online jail records showed.

Sommerfeld was ordered held on bonds $35,000, charged with two counts of manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance and without bond, facing charges of tampering with physical evidence, possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance.

Hewitt police Chief James Devlin told KWTX police first encountered Sommerfeld a few weeks ago when officers were summoned to the new Hewitt Walmart on a service call, Devlin said.

During the encounter officers found a small amount of white powder in a woman’s purse, confiscated it and sent it to a laboratory for analysis.

“When the test came back it was verified as methamphetamine”, Devlin said.

Hewitt police initiated an investigation at that point but did not arrest the woman.

After officers were convinced the substance was methamphetamine, they began a surveillance.

Police also learned Sommerfeld was named in an arrest warrant out of Bosque County, Devlin said.

Officers arranged a “buy” and when they showed up at the location, arrested Ferguson and Sommerfeld both.
