At about 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 23, the drug unit arrested Melissa L. Pask on Garrett Street for possession for the purpose in trafficking in a controlled substance. Police say she was found with approximately $10,000 worth of crystal methamphetamine in her possession while being searched. When officers continued their investigation at a nearby address, they said a larger quantity of the substance, worth almost $75,000, was found inside the residence.

The drug was contained in multiple plastic bags and other items normally used in drug trafficking, such as a digital weigh scale and smaller dime bags. Multiple cellphones with various SIM cards were also seized.

Pask was transported to police headquarters, lodged in cells and later attended a bail hearing where she was remanded into custody. She is also charged with two counts of breach of an officer-in-charge undertaking.
