Brainerd woman charged with possession of heroin

Raylene Love Seres, 32, a resident of Brainerd, was charged May 21, with felony fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance in Morrison County.

Seres was found April 3, sitting in her car at a used car lot near Little Falls, after someone reported she had been sitting there for 45 minutes.

Seres allegedly told the officer she was looking for her dog that had gotten loose at a gas station south of where she was and that she wanted to test drive a vehicle. The nearest gas station to the south was miles away in Royalton.

The criminal complaint said Seres had reddish and watery eyes, but she denied she had used any illegal drugs. The officer located a brown paper bag in the back seat of the vehicle, which contained spoons with white residue and four syringes. The white residue tested positive for heroin and Seres was arrested. She is currently being held at the Crow Wing County Jail and a warrant has been requested.

If convicted, Seres faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.
