Woman pleads guilty in drug bust

January 19th, 2018 by News Tribune in Local News

A Jefferson City woman was placed on five years of supervised probation after pleading guilty to charges in connection with a Mustang Drug Task Force operation that occurred in December 2016.

Christina Crowley, 51, was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance.

Task force members conducted an operation at Cowley's residence on Dix Road, according to a Jefferson City Police probable cause statement.

Crowley said she knew of narcotics in her residence and showed officers where to find them. She also admitted to using marijuana.

A search of the home turned up a lock box, which contained 2 grams of methamphetamine, two bags with 12 grams of marijuana, a digital scale and packaging material.

An additional 68 grams of marijuana were inside a purse in her closet.
