Haugerud charged with possession of both a controlled substance and synthetic marijuana

Kimberly Ann Haugerud, 28, Little Falls, was charged Aug. 27, with one felony count of fifth degree possession of a controlled substance and one misdemeanor count of possession of synthetic marijuana.

On Aug. 25, a Little Falls police officer responded to a welfare complaint. When Haugerud answered the door, the officer noted her brother, Lewis, was also present, agitated and yelling at him.

The officer was allegedly allowed to conduct a search and inside a bedroom, he observed a cup filled with incense and a large number of baggies. He also saw a black, one-hitter pipe next to synthetic marijuana and a 5-inch glass jar which contained a methamphetamine pipe and had a tube coming out of it. The pipe contained white residue and next to it was a white chunk which was melted into the jar.

According to the criminal complaint, the chunk of methamphetamine looked as though it had been recently dumped into the jar and had not been smoked.

Allegedly, Haugerud said the synthetic marijuana and the pipe belonged to her and she was arrested.

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