DUBOIS – A routine check by probation officers has a DuBois woman accused of drug possession and related charges.
According to an affidavit of probable cause filed with District Judge Patrick Ford’s office March 27, Aimee Lynn Carlson, 32, 302 S. State St., DuBois, is charged by the DuBois City police with manufacture of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to the affidavit, officers from the Jefferson County Probation Office had gone to Carlson’s home to check on Carlson. The probation officers noticed a purse beside Carlson, which she said was hers.
The officers checked the purse and found a white vial containing a substance the probation officers believed to be methamphetamine and a large baggie filled with the same substance. The probation officers contacted the police.
After obtaining a waiver of search warrant, signed by Carlson, the police officers searched the residence and located several items of drug paraphernalia, baggies for packaging, pipes, vials, spoons containing drug residue, a syringe and a scale.
Tests on the suspected substance turned up positive for methamphetamine.
