Marijuana wax brings felony charge

Ashley Nicole Pinske, 18, of Detroit Lakes has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony fifth-degree controlled substance crime.

According to court records, on June 3 the car she was riding in was stopped in Detroit Lakes. The officer allegedly smelled burnt marijuana in the vehicle. The occupants were removed and Pinske's open purse, left where she had been sitting, was allegedly found to contain marijuana wax.

She appeared in court June 6 before District Judge Jay Carlson, who released her on her own recognizance, without bail.
