SHEBOYGAN — A Sheboygan woman was charged with possession of methamphetamine after “nodding off” in a vehicle.
36-year-old Jamie L. Gunderson, of Sheboygan, was charged with felony possession of methamphetamine, possession of narcotic drugs and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. An arraignment is scheduled before Judge Dan Borowski on Wednesday, May 2nd.
According to the criminal complaint, at approximately 11:44 AM on April 17th, an officer was dispatched to the 500 block of South River Street for a welfare check. An anonymous caller had informed police that there was a female sitting in a vehicle “nodding off.” An officer located the vehicle parked on the street with Gunderson seated in the driver seat. While speaking to Gunderson, the officer saw, in plain sight, a glass pipe resting on the ashtray. The officer believed the pipe was used for smoking methamphetamine.
During a search of Gunderson’s vehicle, the officer saw a large blue rubber band/tie-off on the driver’s seat. Police reported that Gunderson’s wallet was outside her purse and he could see foil and a needle inside. In the woman’s purse, the officer found a baggie that had a white crystal-like powder inside which was suspected to be methamphetamine.
In Gunderson’s wallet, the officer also found a small circular plastic container. Inside were two small brown chunks, which based on the officer’s training and experience, looked like heroin. The officer asked Gunderson about that substance, and she said it was “Boi,” which is slang for heroin.
The white crystal powder tested positive for meth and the brown chunks tested positive for heroin according to police.
