LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A 31-year-old Nacogdoches woman accepted a plea bargain deal of six months of probation for putting a Styrofoam cup containing a bottle of PCP into a refrigerator at Lufkin’s Academy of Hair. The cup had her name on it.

Latoya Mae Ziglar Pickard appeared in court Friday morning as part of the “rocket docket.” As part of the plea bargain agreement, she pleaded guilty to a second-degree felony charge of a possession of a controlled substance between 4 and 400 grams.

When Ziglar Pickard was arrested on June 18, her bail was set at $20,000.

Lt. David Young, a spokesman for the Lufkin Police Department, said Ziglar Pickard, a student at the Hair Academy, stored a Styrofoam cup with her name on it in the freezer of the school's refrigerator for several days. The cup had a bottle of liquid in it, and after the school's management found what they thought was drugs in their freezer, they called the police.

Young said Ziglar Pickard came to the Lufkin Police Department while the substance was being field tested. After the substance tested positive for PCP, Ziglar Pickard allegedly told the arresting officer that she was holding the drug for a friend.

Back in May 2013, Ziglar Pickard was arrested in San Augustine County after she allegedly cut her husband with a knife because she thought he was cheating on her. She told San Augustine County Sheriff's Office deputies that she had been acting in self defense when she went after her husband with a knife.

According to the arrest affidavit, a deputy with the San Augustine County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to Pickard's residence in the 600 block of U.S. Highway 96 North in reference to an assault. Pickard's husband told the deputy that she attacked him because she thought he was cheating on her, and he had numerous defensive knife wounds on his hands.

"L. Pickard had a small cut above her wrist, but otherwise showed no signs of being physically assaulted," the deputy said in the affidavit.
