Federal Dam woman charged with possession of controlled substances

Trinity Rose Campbell, 21, Federal Dam, was charged July 3 in Morrison County District Court with one felony count of fifth degree possession of a controlled substance.

On July 3, at about 12:45 a.m., a car was observed by a Morrison County Sheriff’s officer entering the parking area of a closed business. Because of prior incidences of theft in the area, the officer investigated.

There were two occupants in the vehicle, one of which was identified as Campbell. She appeared shook up and somewhat hysterical, saying she had just hit a deer. There was extensive damage to the front of the vehicle and it appeared as if the radiator was leaking.

The officer learned Campbell had no driver’s license. He also noted the two occupants were acting nervous so he asked if there were any illegal substances in the vehicle.

Campbell allegedly said she had some pills. She handed the deputy a blue vial, a grinder and a small compact mirror. Inside the grinder, the deputy found two blue pills that Campbell said were Percocet that she had without a prescription.

Inside the vial, the deputy found a brown sandy substance which field-tested positive for heroin.

Campbell was placed under arrest for possession of the controlled substances.

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