Felony fifth-degree controlled substance, felony methamphetamine-related crimes involving children, and warrant apprehension
On or around May 12 and May 13, a confidential, reliable informant allegedly saw meth, a meth pipe with a powdery substance, and two hypodermic needles at 118 Conley Ave. S., Apartment 1.
Pamela Marie Lill, 46, Thief River Falls, has been charged with felony fifth-degree controlled substance crime and felony meth-related crimes involving children. She was arrested.
Richard Wayne Reierson, 33, was arrested on a body-only warrant out of Pennington County.
The charges stemmed from an ongoing drug investigation involving Lill, according to the complaint. The confidential, reliable informant also reported short-term foot traffic to and from Lill’s apartment.
A Pine to Prairie Drug Task Force officer conducted surveillance, seeing multiple people coming and going from the apartment. He also learned that a 10-year-old child lived in a nearby apartment.
A search warrant was soon executed. Inside Lill’s apartment, law enforcement allegedly found Lill and Reierson. They found $734 in cash, a scale, a meth pipe containing residue, and two plastic baggies containing a total of 0.99 grams of suspected meth.
Lill admitted using meth a couple of days earlier. She said she receives $534 in unemployment every week and the cash was her rent money.
The complaint indicated that the cash was located near the drug items.
