WORTHINGTON — Two Wisconsin women face a string of drug-related charges after approximately 40 pounds of marijuana and other controlled substances were allegedly discovered in their vehicle last week.
According to the criminal complaint filed this week in Nobles County District Court, Sarah J. Bovee, 40, of Deforest, Wis. and Amber M. Riskey, 28, of Milwaukee, were arrested just after 2 a.m. March 18 along Interstate 90 near Worthington following a search of their vehicle. That search allegedly revealed 40, one-pound packages of marijuana, 300 1,000mg THC vape cartridges, two 25mg XR Adderall pills and three 20 mg M. Amphet Salt pills.
A Nobles County deputy also allegedly found king-size rolling papers, as well as multiple receipts and airline information.
Bovee and Riskey each face charges of second-degree drug sale, third-degree drug possession and two counts of fifth-degree drug possession, all felonies. The most serious charge — sale — has a maximum penalty of 25 years imprisonment, a $500,000 fine or both.
The duo’s conditional bail was scheduled at $5,000 and unconditional at $20,000.
