Comments Off on Kristine A. Roettger, 26, of Hastings, charged with Methamphetamine distribution

A 26-year-old Hastings woman has been accused of intending to distribute methamphetamine in Adams County Court.

Kristine A. Roettger of 304 S. Rhode Island was charged Oct. 3 with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, a Class 1D felony punishable by three to 50 years in prison.

Roettger was arrested on the charge Oct. 20 and had an initial appearance in Adams County Court on the charge. A further hearing was scheduled for Nov. 4 at 9 a.m.

According to the arrest affidavit, Roettger was the passenger in a vehicle stopped by police on April 15 in the 900 block of West J Street.

During the stop, officers saw a pipe that appeared to have been used for drugs and obtained a search warrant for the vehicle and contents.

Inside a plastic bag at Roettger’s feet, they found a blue pencil case that contained 13.08 grams of meth and two hypodermic needles.

Given the quantity of the drugs and the way it was packaged in four smaller bags, officers believe the meth was intended for sale.
