Oak Grove Woman Faces 10 Years to Life For For Meth Plea

Oak Grove Police Department
Sedonnia Axl Lee Bass

Sedonnia Axl Lee Bass, 28, of Oak Grove, Louisiana, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Shreveport, LA before U.S. District Judge Donald E. Walter for distributing methamphetamine.

According to the guilty plea, a West Carrol Parish Sheriff’s deputy responded to a domestic violence call on November 25, 2018 at an Oak Grove residence.  The deputy approached a vehicle parked in the driveway and made contact with Bass, who was sitting in the driver’s seat.  She told the deputy that she had not seen the altercation and would not say why she was there.  While talking with Bass, the officer noticed that she was trying to conceal something near the center console.  When Bass identified herself, the deputy recognized her name and knew that she had active warrants for her arrest and placed her under arrest.  A search of the car revealed a black bag containing small baggies, a scale, a spoon and a pink glass-smoking pipe wrapped in a handkerchief on the floorboard area of the driver’s side.  The deputy also found a clear plastic bag between the center console and the driver’s seat containing 117.0549 grams of methamphetamine.  After questioning Bass at the station, she admitted the methamphetamine was hers and that she sells methamphetamine in and around the Oak Grove area.

Bass faces up to 10 years to life in prison, at least five years of supervised release and a $10 million fine.

The DEA and the West Carroll Parish Sheriff’s Office conducted the investigation.

Sentencing is set for July 1, 2019.
