WINDOM — Criminal charges have been filed in relation to an October 2020 incident in which a Windom resident is accused of having sold methamphetamine to an undercover officer from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

The criminal complaint alleges that the BCA, with the help of investigators from the Cottonwood County Sheriff's Office, arranged to purchase half an ounce of meth from Larrissa Ramos, 52. They met outside Casey's General Store in Windom, and the transaction was recorded via a hidden audio device as other agents watched the encounter from a distance.

The crystalline substance purchased from Ramos later field-tested positive for methamphetamine and was found to weigh 14.7 grams (just over half an ounce).

Ramos was charged with felony second-degree drug sale, which carries a maximum possible sentence of 25 years in prison and/or a $500,000 fine. If convicted, she will be sentenced based on criminal history.

Ramos was served with a summons to appear in court on this charge. Her first appearance is set for Thursday afternoon.
