Portwood implicated her roommate, 60 year old Shellye Perry of Waco, who eventually consented to a search of the vehicle. Multiple kinds of pills and more suspected methamphetamine turned up in the search of the car. They were both booked into the detention center and charged with multiple drug offenses, as well as theft by unlawful taking for Portwood.
