Court documents reveal the BRDTF found several baggies with a crystal-like substance in Donna’s bedroom. The substance-field tested positive as methamphetamine and weighed 23.6 grams with packaging.

In a search of Amy’s room, officers found a glass pipe with a white powdery substance beneath a Dora the Explorer doll on the night stand. At the time of the search, Amy’s two children, ages 3 and 7, were in the home. Both women were arrested and transported to the Nobles County Jail.

When questioned by officers, Amy refused to give a statement while Donna agreed to speak with them.

During the interview, Donna allegedly admitted that she smokes methamphetamine in her bedroom. She also told agents she had an ounce of the substance in her bedroom. Donna added that $1,915 in cash found in a bag was money received from selling drugs. A total of $2,351 was seized from the residence. Donna also said her daughter, Amy, smokes methamphetamine when Donna supplies her with the drug.Donna%20Dammer%20RGB

Donna has a criminal history related to drugs. In May 2009 she was convicted of fifth-degree controlled substance crime in Rock County from a 2007 incident. She was also convicted in March 2008 on the same charge in Cottonwood County relating to an additional 2007 incident.

Donna is charged with second-degree controlled substance sale (of three grams or more of cocaine, heroin or methamphetamine) and possession of a controlled substance crime in the second degree. Both charges are felonies that carry a maximum sentence of three to 40 years in prison, a $500,000 fine or both.

Amy is charged with fifth-degree drug possession, which carries a sentence of six months to 10 years in prison and a maximum fine of $20,000.

Both women are also charged with storing meth paraphernalia in the presence of a child, a felony with a maximum sentence of up to five years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both; and possession of drug paraphernalia, a petty misdemeanor that carries a sentence of a $300 fine.

They were both released from the Nobles County Jail last week after posting bond.
