Tyra charged with sale of meth

Bobbi Dawn Tyra, 25, St. Cloud, was charged with one felony count each of first degree sale of a controlled substance and second degree possession of a controlled substance in the Morrison County District Court.

On Feb. 28, an investigator with the Central Minnesota Violent Offenders Task Force, after learning Tyra was possibly selling methamphetamine in the Little Falls area, followed her vehicle as it drove around Little Falls. She allegedly made several short-term stops.

Tyra then left Little Falls and drove to Randall where she made a stop at the trailer park, then drove to Wadena. On the return trip to Little Falls, she was stopped by a sheriff’s deputy.

During the conversation with the investigator, she allegedly admitted she was in possession of methamphetamine. And, according to the criminal complaint, she turned over two baggies containing a white crystal-like substance which appeared to be meth and which later field-tested  positive for the drug.

During a taped statement from Tyra, she allegedly admitted she had been selling drugs in Little Falls and had gone to Wadena to purchase additional drugs with the intent to sell.

If convicted, Tyra faces a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and/or a $1 million fine.
