NORTHWOOD | A St. Paul woman arrested at Diamond Jo Casino was charged with a felony after hiding two vials of drugs in her "vaginal area," officials say.
A Worth County Sheriff’s deputy was dispatched to Diamond Jo for a medical call Saturday evening, in which a male was transported and Amber Rose Rogalla was arrested.
Rogalla, 33, had a felony warrant out of Minnesota, according to court documents. She was transported to the Worth County Jail.
“After arriving at the jail Rogalla was searched, and she removed two vials from her vaginal area,” court documents said.
Rogalla told law enforcement one vial that contained a clear liquid was GHB, a controlled substance, according to court documents, and the second vial contained methamphetamine residue. The vial, which contained a crystal-like substance, field tested positive for meth, court documents said.
Law enforcement also said they discovered a blue case in Rogalla's purse which contained a small glass vial with meth, as well as a Finding Dory tin containing a device used to smoke marijuana, a multicolored glass pipe for smoking marijuana and a green, leafy substance that field tested positive for marijuana, according to court documents.
Rogalla was charged with felony possession of contraband in a correctional institution, as well as a number of misdemeanors: possession of drug paraphernalia, controlled substance violation — GHB, possession of a controlled substance — meth and possession of a controlled substance — marijuana
She is held in the Worth County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
Rogella has submitted a written plea of not guilty. A trial has been set for March 1 in Worth County District Court for the possession of drug paraphernalia charge.
A preliminary hearing is Oct. 10 for the other four charges.
