Ponsford woman charged with drugs

A Ponsford woman made her first appearance Monday in Becker County District Court on a felony drug possession charge.

Michaelene Joy Norcross, 39, of 28140 476th Ave., Ponsford, was charged following a Feb. 27 incident in which a vehicle was found in the ditch along 460th Avenue in Becker County. Norcross was one of the passengers in the vehicle. She was allegedly found in possession of numerous pills and a leafy substance that appeared to be marijuana. According to court records, the pills contained acetaminophen/hydrocodone, gapapentin, hydromorphine, lyrica and oxycodone.

Norcross is currently in custody at the Becker County Jail awaiting her next court appearance, at a March 24 omnibus hearing. Her bail was set at $10,000 with conditions, or $25,000 without conditions.
