(Newser) – Meet Sarah Elizabeth Furay, a 19-year-old Texas teen who's now given us what the Houston Chronicle is dubbing the "happiest mugshot" in America. It's hard to see what brought out Furay's grin, after she was arrested Friday when College Station police used a search warrant to rifle through her apartment. What they allegedly found, per KAGS: five different types of drugs (including coke, meth, and ecstasy), packaging materials, digital scales, and a handwritten price list for the illegal wares.

Police say cellphone records also seemed to back up Furay running a drug-hawking business. Furay was charged with three counts of manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance, as well as one count of drug possession, KAGS notes. She's already posted her $39,000 bail and been released to spread her smile on the outside. (This California bandit told his victims to keep smiling.)
