Couple faces felony charges for possessing meth

Morrison County Attorney Brian Middendorf and his staff charged Mathew James Kasper of Little Falls and Dena Rae Oswald of Randall with felony fifth degree controlled substance possession, May 22.

The charges stem from a Nov. 27, 2012, incident when law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Kasper’s residence in the city of Little Falls.

The search allegedly revealed evidence of methamphetamine drug use, including finding a black scale and baggies with residue in the master bedroom, and needles were found in the bathroom, all of which tested positive for methamphetamine.

Oswald, who is the mother of one of Kasper’s children, had a purse which allegedly contained a spoon that also tested positive for methamphetamine.

If convicted, Kasper, 38, and Oswald, 36, each face a maximum penalty of five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.
