An illegal driver helped police bust up a meth operation in Chickasha. The first of four arrests took place on Friday night.

Chickasha Police dash cam video set the scene, "I don't have an attitude. I just really don't want to go to jail," said Suzanne Fletcher, as she reluctantly got out of the car she never should have been driving in.

Fletcher didn't have a valid driver's license or car tag, but admitted, she did have something police wanted, "I'm going to be honest with you, there is something in my bra and pants," she said just before a pat down.

Chickasha Police retrieved a glass smoking pipe, a bag of methamphetamine, and other drug paraphernalia from her. Investigators were able to trace those drugs back to the point of sell at Ronald and Catherine Burnett's home.

"We do believe they [Burnett] had been selling for quite some time," said Major Shannon McClain of Chickasha Police.

According to police reports, Catherine Burnett admitted to dealing drugs.

"I'm small time nobody," Burnett allegedly said at the time of her arrest.

She didn't stick to that story for long. When News9 arrived on her doorstep she denied the allegations.

Lisa Monahan, News9 : Have you been selling drugs out of this home?
Catherine Burnett : No ma'am.

Burnett claimed, she was framed by an old friend and said police found "very little" drugs in her home.

According to police reports, it contradicted Burnett's statements. Investigators reported finding 15 grams of methamphetamine and $2,000 in her home. Burnett told News9 the drugs seized were only for her personal habit.

"I will get my name clear if it's the last thing I do," said Burnett.

She and her husband bonded out of the Grady County Jail. A third person was also arrested at the Burnett home, Carla Bozarth. Police believe she was at the home to purchase drugs from the Burnetts.
