Warrant issued for White Earth woman

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a White Earth woman after she failed to make a scheduled appearance Tuesday in Becker County District Court on a felony drug possession charge.

Marissa Starr Azure, 19, of 36430 County Highway 21, White Earth, was reportedly a passenger in a motor vehicle that was stopped for speeding on Oct. 22, 2011 while traveling south on Highway 59 at around 1:50 p.m.

According to the criminal complaint, a search of the defendant's purse yielded not only a marijuana grinder and rolling papers, but also two prescription pill bottles with her name on them. One of the pills later tested positive for containing the drug oxycodone, for which she did not have a prescription.
