Cell phone was key piece of evidence against convicted Hampton drug dealer
Reader is facing charges in U.S. District Court for allegedly carrying out three bank robberies in Hampton and Seabrook along with her boyfriend, Jason Pratt.
Hampton police got their break with Sheppard while investigating Reader and Pratt, who were suspected of dealing drugs at the time, according to the warrant.
Reader’s mother contacted police and handed over her daughter’s cell phone, saying she believed it “would contain evidence of the sale of controlled drugs in Hampton,” the warrant says.
One message dated March 26 from Reader to Sheppard says, “Hey, I just got a call from a guy who wants a lot. I’ve been trying to get his business for a long time. Can you help me? I know it’s late but worth it.”On April 1, another text from Reader to Sheppard said, “Hey Cindy, do you have any benzos. Also he is gonna be here in a few mins (sic) so I’ll be over then… oh and one more thing, that bag you have jay was small.” By the end of May, Hampton police also observed two other people with criminal records for drug use around or near Sheppard’s apartment. They also learned from a Salem police detective that Sheppard had agreed to sell a drug to a confidential informant back in February, but the deal never materialized, court records say.
