Heather M. Klette - BCDC

At approximately 3:50pm Saturday December 7, 2019 Officers Michael Smith and Brandon Hollingsworth were dispatched to a call of a reckless driver in a Kia Optima that had just pulled into the Long’s Pic Pac grocery store.


Upon contact, the officers asked 40 year old Heather M. Klette of Cinncinnati, Ohio to step out of the vehicle but she was non-compliant. While being removed from the vehicle Klette attempted to put a bottle of pills with her name on it in her pocket to conceal it from the officers. Inside was found various kinds of pills and search of her vehicle yielded Marijuana.


Klette initially told the officers her name was “Mary Sheets” which Bell County Dispatch stated was not on file. After being confronted about the name she supplied she finally supplied the correct information which returned as having three fugitive warrants from Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky. Her license was also found to be suspended, not in her possession, and she couldn’t produce her insurance card.

Klette was also attempting to hide a roll of (17) seventeen $100 dollar bills determined to be counterfeit.


Heather M. Klette was transported to and lodged in the Bell County Detention Center charged with:

Operating on a suspended license,

License to be in possession,

Possession of Marijuana,

Possession of controlled substance – 1st degree, 1st offense (drug unspecified),

Tampering with physical evidence,

Criminal possession of forged instrument – 1st degree,

Failure to produce insurance card,

Failure to maintain insurance,

Giving an officer false information.


She was also served the three outstanding fugitive warrants.
