Ocala, Florida — A Five Guys Burger employee was arrested and is being held without bond after she failed to appear before the court.

Angel Ann Smothers, 26, was arrested for trafficking in hydrocodone in April of 2013. She was 23 at the time.

In August of 2014, a confidential informant told drug agents that Smothers had been distributing heroin from her apartment.

During the investigation, agents “wired” the informant for video and audio. The informant then arranged a drug deal.

The informant arrived at 805 Northwest 24th Place, Aprt. 3, and purchased $80 worth of heroin.

Smothers was arrested and charged with Distribution of Heroin.

Since that time, Smothers has sold drugs and violated her probation multiple times.

In January of 2016, Smothers was again arrested for selling heroin.

In July of 2016, she was scheduled to go before a judge, but failed to appear. A warrant was then issued for her arrest.

On Sunday, Smothers was located and arrested on [that] warrant.

She has previous arrests for Grand Theft Auto, DUI (x3), Violation of Probation (x32), Trafficking in Hydrocodone (x4), Possession of Xanax without a Prescription, Obtaining a Controlled Substance by Fraud (x5), Driving while License Suspended or Revoked (x3), Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Distribution of Heroin (x3), and Providing a False Name to Law Enforcement.

Smothers has served several short sentences at the Marion County Jail in between arrests.

An unnamed source stated that Smothers has been known to push heroin on teens and young adults. The source also said that Smothers’ child was born addicted to drugs.

Smothers has a no bond status because she violated probation.

Smothers’ next court date is slated for September 27, 2016.
