A woman who called the cops after saying she was thrown out of a moving vehicle is facing a felony drug charge after allegedly being found with methamphetamine on her.
Nichole Lynn Erickson, 33, of Isanti, was charged before Judge Amy Brosnahan on March 6 in Isanti County District Court in Cambridge with felony fifth-degree drug possession. Her bail was set at $25,000 without conditions or $3,000 with conditions and her next court appearance for March 23.
The incident occurred on March 3 after law enforcement was dispatched to the area of County Road 5 and Raven Street in Bradford Township.
According to court records, Erickson has previous convictions for felony fifth-degree drug possession from March 2012 in Isanti County; felony fifth-degree drug possession, subsequent conviction, from September 2012 in Anoka County; felony fifth-degree drug possession, subsequent conviction, from September 2013 in Isanti County; and felony fifth-degree drug possession, subsequent conviction, from November 2013 in Isanti County.
According to the criminal complaint:
On March 3, at 7:31 a.m., Isanti County Deputy John Gillquist was dispatched to a domestic in the area of County Road 5 and Raven Street.
Erickson reported she had been thrown out of a moving vehicle, and when Gillquist located Erickson, she appeared lethargic and was slurring her words. Gillquist also observed a cut on her cheek and a cut near her ear, so an ambulance was called to treat the injuries.
While Erickson was being treated by ambulance personnel, Gillquist observed a blue tube sticking out of her pocket. When Gillquist asked Erickson what it was, she replied her significant other put the blue tube on her, and he was always putting drug paraphernalia and methamphetamine on her to get her in trouble. Gillquist recovered the tube and observed it contained a white powdery substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.
