Charges have been filed against Krista Wilhelm in Los Alamos Magistrate Court after Los Alamos Police Department removed some 50 hypodermic needles Aug. 1 from her home.

LAPD officers responded to an address on Orange Street for a criminal trespass complaint involving Kevin Herring and reportedly observed “methamphetamine related drug paraphernalia throughout the home”, including multiple needles, methamphetamine cooking spoons, two “loaded needles” and multiple suboxone on the floor.

The statement of probable cause filed by Det. Ryan Wolking said Cpl. Jemuel Montoya reported to him that both Herring and Wilhelm appeared “high” as if they had recently consumed methamphetamine. Wolking later in the day obtained a search warrant and searched the residence along with Det. Sgt. James Rodriguez and Det. Matt Lyon.

Wolking’s report indicated the detectives found 48 needles scattered throughout the home, on floors, boxes and dressers. Wolking allegedly found two additional needles on the floor mixed with children’s toys and clothes.

Wilhelm has been charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. Her arraignment is set for Aug. 25 before Magistrate Judge Pat Casados.
