IRONTON — An Ironton woman was indicted on drug charges last week by a Lawrence County grand jury.

Amanda Dawn Cade Gillum, 37, of the 3100 block of 5th Street, Ironton, was charged with trafficking and possession of 20.1 grams of fentanyl, aggravated trafficking of 5.3 grams of crystal meth in the vicinity of a juvenile, aggravated possession of 5.3 grams of meth and illegal conveyance of prohibited items onto the grounds of a detention facility.

The indictment also seeks to confiscate $1,085 in cash in her possession when she was arrested Feb. 23. A second specification in the indictment is that she had three firearms on or about her person while dealing drugs that could enhance any prison sentence should she be convicted.
