Court documents state law enforcement received a Crimestoppers tip that Demaranville received meth on April 30, so Mitchell Police Division conducted a search of her home. As she is on probation, she had already waived her right to search and seizure.

Law enforcement found a plastic baggie with residue that tested positive for meth, a straw that appeared to be used to snort drugs, and a pipe that appeared to be used to smoke meth.
