The Baxter Bulletin reports that Rebecca Martin, a winner of $200,000 in an Arkansas lottery game last year, posted a $150,000 bond Monday to be released from the Baxter County jail after her arrest on drug charges. 

Martin and two others were arrested after a search of her residence turned up more than a pound of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. She faces two paraphernalia charges and one trafficking charge.

The Bulletin details Martin's long history of dealings with the law on drug matters. She won the lottery payout on a $10 Black Pearl ticket. At the time, she said she was going to use the money to pay off a home loan and save the rest.
