Drug Task Force Finds Eight Pounds of Marijuana in Woman's Home

Detectives said they also found drug sale ledgers, $3,300 in cash, and items used to sell marijuana in the home.

St. Charles County Drug Task Force detectives found more than 8 pounds of marijuana in a woman’s home in St. Peters Tuesday.

Angela Marie Miller, 32, of the 1400 block of Sandra Elaine Drive in St. Peters, was charged Wednesday with distributing a controlled substance and unlawful use of drug-related items.

Drug Task Force detectives served a search warrant on Miller’s home Tuesday and found 8 pounds and 7.5 ounces of marijuana in her bedroom closet. According to the report, most of the marijuana was in large, heat-sealed plastic bags, but several bags were being condensed into smaller bags for sale.

Detectives said they found several ledgers documenting marijuana sales for thousands of dollars and money order receipts for transfer of funds believed to be from marijuana sales.

They also found drug-related items such as marijuana pipes, foil pipes, digital scales, sandwich bags and a heat-sealing machine in Miller’s bedroom.

A safe under her bed contained $3,300, which was seized pending forfeiture, the report said.

Bail for Miller was set at $20,000, cash only.

Mr. Strickien, thank you for not hiding behind some acronym. I am not attempting to " break your bones ", I am attempting to share with you and others adding to this comment the truth that the day is coming where you will no longer find what you are seeking from smoking or eating maryjane. You will than tell yourself that there are other drugs that will pick you up where the weed no longer works. You will try a small amount and again find that it will give you a real treat, so the next time you will try a little more, while telling yourself I'll stop any tine that I wish. Now you will be off and running for your first Golden Arm.

William Braudis I smoked my first joint in December, 1967, at the tender age of 21. Now, a mere 45 years later, I still smoke pot. I have never 'graduated' to 'harder' drugs. I am living proof that prohibitionist propaganda is a fallacy...a blatant lie. The worst experience I had with marijuana was spending 5 years in Federal Prison for a pot offense. If you were educated in the United States, do you recall the concept referred to as 'freedom'? That is what our country was founded upon...freedom of the individual...and the inalienable right to pursue happiness in his own way...so long as he brings no harm to others or their property. I ask you not to believe, but, I defy you to deny.

William Braudis, Yes, please tell me of all the deaths caused by using marijuana. oh, that's right you can't because there are none. Illegality has nothing to do with the potential hazards of something; you can sky dive and that can surely kill you; you can stuff your face full of fattening, disgusting food for years on end and have a massive heart attack and that's perfectly legal; and you can become addicted to shopping for clothes, but that is still legal. Your problem is that you are a judgmental, ignorant, arrogant individual so full of hate and spite towards anyone who thinks differently than your "righteous and noble" ideas that you would be willing to kill them or, like a coward, have the state do it on your behalf. You are no different than any of the murderous dictators that plagued humanity throughout time. Fortunately, yours is a dying breed and drugs will be legalized (like CO & WA) if not out-right decriminalized eventually because people that believe other men and women should be free to do as they want so long as they don't harm another are growing in numbers and are sick and tired of the petty tyrants, such as yourself, that stick their noses in the day-to-day affairs of every-day people going about their lives. I hope you can evolve to love your neighbor despite your differences and embrace the idea that we're all free individuals that can make our own decisions so long as we aren't hurting another. I say good day, sir!

ne1ne- I couldn't have said it better myself and I am an English major! Maybe William is a dry drunk friend of Bill, or better yet, maybe he is Bill.
