Woman sentenced for having meth and pipes

A Box Elder woman received three years probation Monday in District Court in Havre after being caught with methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia while trespassing.

Brittany L. Henderson, born in 1995, received a three-year deferred imposition of sentence for felony criminal possession of dangerous drugs, a sentence in accordance with a plea deal that dismissed an additional misdemeanor charge. If Henderson abides by the conditions of the sentence, she can have the charges erased from her record.

A landowner walked into the Havre police station Aug. 14, 2013, to report that, after he had evicted people from his property, other people began staying without permission, court documents say.

Three officers responded to the scene, where, after they announced themselves, people began running out the back door. Two of the people running were stopped and identified. One of them was Henderson.

Officers asked Henderson if she had ID. She opened her wallet, keeping it pointed toward her as if she were concealing something, the documents say.

Henderson threw the wallet on the bed and the officer picked it up and began looking through it, telling Henderson she was free to tell him to stop any time.

“Inside, he located a small plastic bag containing several small crystals later identified as methamphetamine,” documents say.

Henderson was arrested. On the way to jail, Henderson told the officer she had a meth pipe in her purse as well. Once at the station, Henderson gave permission for another search, after which a blue glass pipe with a thick white residue and a rectangular piece of clear glass with a white powdery substance were found.

Havre woman sentenced for selling pot

A Havre woman received three years probation Monday in District Court in Havre for selling marijuana to an informant on three separate occasions.

Dixie L. Schroeder, born in 1989, received a three-year deferred imposition of sentence for felony criminal distribution of dangerous drugs, a sentence in accordance with a plea deal that dropped two other identical charges. If Schroeder abides by the conditions, she can have the charges erased from her record.

An informant called a Safe Trails Tri-Agency Task Force agent June 10 to report that Schroeder offered to sell an eight ounce of marijuana for $50, court documents say.

The informant met with agents that evening before driving to Schroeder’s residence to buy pot.

During the debrief, the informant told agents Schroeder sold the pot from her living room-kitchen area, where an additional ounce lay on the counter in a baggie.

Schroeder called the informant again June 15, and the next day, offering to sell pot. The informant was prepared by agents for a controlled sale.

During the debriefing after the sale, the informant told agents Schroeder put 3.5 grams of pot on a scale, put it in a baggie and then sold it for the $50 that was provided by the agents.

Schroeder sold the informant pot a third time, June 19.
