Grunst convicted of possession of methamphetamine

On June 4, Morrison County District Court convicted Stephanie Kay Grunst, 26, Little Falls, of fifth degree possession of a controlled substance.

On July 18, 2013, Little Falls Police Officers arrived at a residence looking for a suspect which they found in his bedroom. With him was Grunst.

During the arrest, the officers located a straw and two small baggies containing a white crystal-like substance which later field-tested positive for methamphetamine.

Grunst admitted she had methamphetamine in her system and gave the officers permission to search her bedroom. There they found a butane torch, a mirror, glass, a razor blade and a straw, each containing white powder. They also found a bong with white powdery substance inside.

Grunst was sentenced to 30 days in jail with credit for the two days already served. She was fined $500 and given five years of supervised probation.

Grunst received a stay of adjudication which means charges may be dismissed if she abides by all the stipulations placed on her during probation.
