WORTHINGTON — An Adrian woman is charged with first-degree drug sale and second-degree drug possession following a traffic stop in Worthington.

The ruling does not find theSioux Falls man mentally ill and dangerous, which would have resulted in placement in the Minnesota Security Hospital in St. Peter. Vossen was earlier found incompetent to stand trial on a murder charge in the 1974 homicide of Mabel Herman.
"It's difficult to think of a way this could have been worse,” said Deputy County Attorney Braeden Hoefert on the circumstance of the case.

Early on Jan. 18, Kayla Doyle, 38, was pulled over by a Worthington police officer while traveling north on Minnesota 60 in a white pickup truck. Doyle’s windows were reportedly tinted darker than allowed by law and the officer reportedly observed the vehicle cross over the center line, and then over the fog line.

Doyle was the sole occupant in the vehicle, and the officer recognized her from prior police contacts. According to the report, Doyle was breathing heavily and the officer observed a torch-style lighter in the vehicle. She denied using controlled substances or alcohol since May 2021 and agreed to perform some field sobriety tests.

Doyle reportedly showed signs of controlled substance use during the tests. Upon request from the officer, Doyle objected to the search of the vehicle. A K9 unit was called to the scene to perform an exterior sniff, and reportedly identified the presence of narcotics.

During the search of the truck, multiple baggies — containing a total 32.09 grams of white crystal substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine — were reportedly located. Several other bags that were empty or contained white residue were also found, according to the complaint. Also in the truck were a digital scale, an adderall pill and a glass pipe containing residue that field tested positive for methamphetamine.


Doyle was arrested and transported to the Nobles County jail, where conditional bail was set at $75,000. She is scheduled to make her initial court appearance Jan. 31.

If convicted, Doyle faces a maximum sentence of 30 years imprisonment and/or a $1 million fine for the first-degree drug sale charge. Second degree drug possession carries a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison, a $500,000 fine, or both.
