Jamie Lynn France is under arrest this week, marking the low point in what appears to have been a hard fall from grace for the 2009 winner of the Miss Teen Oregon-World beauty pageant.
After complaining on her social media accounts of a series of misfortunes over the past few months, France was busted Tuesday in a seedy hotel room with a married, suspected drug dealer 14 years her senior — and a large supply of illegal drugs.
The former beauty queen — seen above in 2009, left, and today — was released on a $30,000 bond, local media reported.
On her Facebook account, France previously said that she had lost her job this year, and narrowly avoided death in an auto accident. Earlier this month, she posted a news story about a 19-year-old woman found dead in an irrigation ditch, and France said that she had known the woman since they were children.
When Jamie Lynn France won the 2009 statewide beauty pageant, the Redmond, Oregon, native was described as an Honors Society high school senior involved in numerous community services and activities whose interests included, “reading, writing, school, hiking, camping, running, riding bikes, hanging out with friends, and working.”
She had a special interest in combating animal cruelty, and had traveled to Europe to see an endangered tortoise sanctuary, according to report on he pageant crown at the time.
But earlier this month, in her next-to-last Facebook status update before her arrest, she posted the one line, “The game never shows love to anyone.”
On Tuesday, Keizer, Oregon, police culminated a five-month drug investigation, raiding a home owned by Jarrod and Erin Wells, both 37. They found Erin Wells at home with her two sons, ages 4 and 7 — and they also found heroin, methamphetamine, and hallucinogenic mushrooms.
The house was in “chaotic” shape, police said, marked throughout with fire and smoke damage, and with smoke detectors disabled.
Cops said they believe drugs were being dealt out of the house, which is situated just a half-mile from a local middle school. In addition to drug rap, Erin Wells was hit with child neglect charges.
About three miles away, the investigators also raided a motel room where they found more drugs — as well as Jarrod Wells, along with Jamie Lynn France, who is now 23-years-old.
