A Bagley woman was sentenced Monday in Becker County District Court on a felony drug possession charge.
Misty Marie Littlewolf, 34, of 2695 Lower Rice Lake Rd., Bagley (formerly of Detroit Lakes), was given a stay of adjudication on conditions including completion of a 30-day jail sentence (which she may serve on electronic home monitoring, at her own expense), up to five years' probation and payment of $575 in court fines and fees.
If she successfully completes probation, the felony charge of fifth degree controlled substance crime-possession will be reduced to a misdemeanor on her record.
Littlewolf was originally charged in connection with an Aug. 30, 2010 incident in Becker County.
Also charged in connection with the same incident were James Edward Krause, Jr., 40, and Mark Allen Nordlund, 37, both of Detroit Lakes.
According to the criminal complaint, the charges stem from an incident in which a confidential informant of local law enforcement arranged to meet with Nordlund, allegedly for the purchase of methamphetamine.
After the informant paid him $200 cash (marked bills), Nordlund said he was waiting for his supplier to arrive; a short time later a Chevy Suburban pulled up outside and he went to meet with them. He appeared to be exchanging the money for something with one of the vehicle's passengers.
Nordlund then came back inside and gave the informant a clear plastic baggie that had a white crystalline substance inside; the substance in the baggie was later identified through testing as .4 grams of meth.
The vehicle left the scene, and law enforcement officers followed them. Krause and Littlewolf were identified as being passengers. After they stopped at a private residence to drop off the driver, the officers initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle and a K-9 unit was brought in to do a search.
The dog "hit" on three areas of the vehicle as possibly containing drugs.
A search of the interior revealed two cigarette packs each containing a white crystalline substance, along with about $477 in cash, which included all of the marked bills from the informant's purchase earlier in the evening.
