Woman facing charges

FAIRMONT — A Fairmont woman is facing multiple felony charges in Martin County.

Pamela Elaine Carter, 24, has been charged with two counts of selling drugs in the fifth degree and one count of drug possession in the fifth degree. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

According to the report:

On Sept. 11, a Minnesota River Valley Drug Task Force agent sent a text message to Carter, asking if she had any marijuana to sell. Carter and the agent reached an agreement whereby Carter would sell 2 grams of marijuana wax for $120 to the agent.

At about 1 p.m. that day, the agent texted Carter and told her that she had $200. Carter responded that she could give her 3.5 grams. Cater then asked the agent to meet her at a residence in the 100 block of West First Street in Fairmont.

The agent went to the address and met with Carter, who gave her a small tinfoil envelope for $200. Carter said she did not have a small container for the marijuana wax, and the agent asked Carter if she could contact her the next week for more wax. Carter stated, “Sounds good.”

On Oct. 3, the agent again made arrangements to purchase marijuana wax from Carter. The agent met Carter at the same residence and exchanged $120 for approximately 2 grams of marijuana wax. After the transaction was complete, the agent obtained a search warrant that was executed the same day at 3:30 p.m.

Carter and two other males were present, and Carter and one of the males were placed under arrest.

A search of the premises found marijuana wax, marijuana candles, two digital scales, multiple pipes and bongs, two firearms, more than 100 grams of a green leafy substance and U.S. currency totaling $1,847. The male was interviewed and said everything in the apartment was Carter’s and his.

Carter was advised of her rights and agreed to answer questions. She admitted to selling marijuana wax to make extra money to make ends meet.
