A Crookston woman is accused of transporting baseball-sized balls of methamphetamines from Minnesota to North Dakota.
33-year-old Amy Nicole Heinle was charged with a first-degree felony for possessing a controlled substance. If convicted, she could face up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
The charges stem from an early January 2016 drug stakeout at the Crookston Walmart, where a confidential informant met Ashley Kay Herrin, 31, and Derek William Jung, 34, both of Crookston.
Heinle told officers she drove to Minneapolis and picked up Herrin, who had two packages each containing “just under the size of a baseball of methamphetamine,” and brought her to Grand Forks and then Crookston.
