CLEAR LAKE | A Clear Lake woman is accused of possessing ecstasy and marijuana with intent to distribute.
Morgan Doe Darveaux, 19, is charged with two felony controlled substance violations and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
Darveaux was stopped by Clear Lake police for a traffic offense about 10:15 a.m. Feb. 24 while driving her 2010 white Chevrolet Impala in the 1600 block of Fourth Avenue South in Clear Lake.
Court documents said the officer smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.
Darveaux allegedly stated that she was in possession of marijuana and MDMA, also known as ecstasy, and provided the marijuana to the officer.
Upon further investigation, the officer found four ecstasy pills, .5 to 1 gram of powdered ecstasy and four packages of marijuana.
“On completion of the investigation it was learned the defendant possessed the MDMA with the intent to distribute it to another person,” the criminal complaints said. “Subsequent statements by the defendant and investigation showed the defendant possessed the marijuana with the intent to distribute it to others.”
The drugs were located along with unused drug packaging and a black digital scale with marijuana residue in it.
A nationwide warrant was issued March 1 and she was arrested March 3.
Darveaux was booked in Cerro Gordo County Jail and later released on own recognizance following her initial court appearance.
She is scheduled to appear in Cerro Gordo County District Court for the controlled substance charges March 23. A non-jury trial for the drug paraphernalia charge is scheduled for Sept. 4.
