A Mitchell woman faces up to 15 years in prison after allegedly admitting to police she intended to sell methamphetamine.

On Jan. 18, a Mitchell police officer witnessed 48-year-old Christina Bruguier driving an ATV on West Third Avenue, and knew from previous encounters that Bruguier did not have a valid driver's license.

The officer stopped Bruguier, and while writing her a ticket for driving with a suspended license, Bruguier allegedly admitted she had just received 1 gram of meth from a known drug dealer. Bruguier told police she intended to re-sell the meth herself to make money, according to court documents.

The officer located 1.85 grams of meth, a digital scale, used syringes and a grinder with marijuana residue.

Bruguier was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, a Class 5 felony; manufacturing, distributing or possessing drugs, a Class 4 felony; and possession of two ounces of marijuana or less and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors.
