Plymouth Woman Charged With Selling Marijuana in Her Home
A Plymouth woman has been charged with drug possession and sales after police say they found marijuana and a digital scale in her apartment.
Toni Frances Bauer, 32, is charged with two felonies: fifth-degree drug possession and fifth-degree drug sales, each of which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
According to the criminal complaint, signed by Plymouth Police Officer Amy Goodwin, police executed a search warrant on Bauer’s apartment in the 9700 block of 37th Place North on Sept. 13 after they learned that narcotics were being sold from the apartment.
Officers found Bauer inside, and she told them that she lived in the apartment with her two young children and no other adults.
During a search of the apartment, police found three plastic bags of suspected marijuana in a container in the master bedroom’s closet, according to the complaint.
Also in the container were personal items that belonged to Bauer, including clothing. They found a digital scale on the bedroom dresser with marijuana residue in it, the complaint charges.
The suspected marijuana tested positive and weighed 66.01 grams, according to the complaint.
Bauer has been released from custody on a $3,000 bond. Her next court hearing was slated for Sept. 24 in Hennepin County District Court.
