A recent graduate of JMU was in court this morning on several drug charges.
Elizabeth Boatwright faces seven felony counts for possession and manufacturing controlled substances.
After months of investigation, police say the Norfolk woman, who graduated in from JMU in May, was making meth and cocaine her final year at the university.
According to the Harrisonburg Rush Drug Task Force, a confidential informant helped close the case by purchasing cocaine from Boatwright on three separate occasions.
The Task Force then obtained a search warrant and arrested Boatwright at her home on Campbell Avenue in Harrisonburg.
One neighbor of Boatwright's, a current JMU student, says he knew her, but had no idea this was all going on.
"And we started just talking about the area, and places we'd like to see, stuff like that. And, I'm here a lot actually. This is basically where I live. I don't leave much. And I was completely oblivious to what was going on, like this is the first I've ever heard,” says senior Michael Shydlinkski.
Boatwright is scheduled to appear in court again on the morning of September 2.
