CARROLLTON, Mo. — Formal drug charges have been filed against a resident of Carrollton.
According to a probable cause statement filed in a Carroll County courtroom Monday, Traci Lynn Wheeler, 47, is charged with felony delivery of a controlled substance, felony possession of a controlled substance except 35 grams or less of marijuana and two misdemeanor counts of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia as a prior offender.
The charges were filed after Carrollton police investigated reports of a suspicious person on Sunday. Contact was made with Wheeler, who allegedly admitted to possession of drugs during a conversation with an officer.
A search of Wheeler’s backpack reportedly uncovered a baggy containing 1.6 grams of methamphetamine as well as other baggies containing smaller amounts of meth. 98 unused small plastic baggies, commonly associated with drug distribution, hypodermic syringes and a glass smoking pipe were also logged into evidence.
Wheeler is currently in custody at the Chariton County Jail, held on $35,000 cash-only bond. Future court dates are currently pending.
