Former Columbia County Drug Court Coordinator arrested on additional drug charges.

Emily Davis Cayton, 30, of Scappoose, was arrested for possession of drugs on Feb. 11 and lodged in the Columbia County Jail.

Cayton, the former Columbia County drug court coordinator, was first arrested on Sept. 4, 2008, on charges related to theft and possession of drugs. She was arrested a second time on Sept. 19, 2008 on charges related to attempting to influence the drug court.

Dale Anderson, chief deputy district attorney, said Cayton was released from jail on Sept. 19, 2008, on a conditional release agreement. She was living on her own in Columbia County from Sept. 19 to until her arrest on Feb. 11.

On Oct. 2, 2008, she was indicted on one felony count each; for delivery of methamphetamine, unlawful possession of methamphetamine, first-degree theft and receiving a bribe. She was also charged with one count of tampering with public records, a misdemeanor.

Cayton’s conditional release was revoked on Feb. 13. Anderson said additional charges would likely be filed against her.
