Jamie Lynn Martyn is facing several charges after she allegedly tried to steal a necklace and pushed employees who tried to stop her.

According to court documents, police officers were dispatched to 504 Central Avenue on Monday for a report of a theft. That address is for Dragonfly Dry Goods.

When officers arrived, they were told that Martyn had tried to steal a necklace, and two employees tried blocked the exit to stop her.

They told the police officers that Martyn pushed them "multiple times" in an "insulting and provoking manner and caused some redness to their arms.

Martyn was arrested and taken to the Cascade County Detention Center.

An inventory of her property was conducted, and officers found 1.13 grams of meth, a glass pipe, a syringe, a small scale, more than 50 small baggies, and $547 in cash, according to court documents.

Martyn reportedly told the officers that the baggies were so that she could share her marijuana and meth with her friends, and that she had sold drugs to her friends in the past.

A probable cause affidavit states that Martyn told officers that the scale was for weighing narcotics when she bought them so she did not get ripped off.

She also said that the cash was from her tax return.

Martyn has been charged with felony criminal possession of dangerous drugs, and the following misdemeanors: two counts of assault, one count of theft, and one count of criminal possession of drug paraphernalia.

Court documents note that Martyn has a criminal record in both Montana and Tennessee.

Prosecutors requested that bond for Martyn be set at $7,500.
