Suspect denies multiple drug cases, failure to appear in courtPublished 5:07am Sunday, February 17, 2013
A suspect arrested in a two drug busts and involved in another drug case pleaded not guilty Thursday in Mower County Court to several felony charges.
Jacqueline Couture Fisher, 21, of Austin, pleaded not guilty to four counts of third-degree drug sale, second-degree drug sale of more than 3 grams of methamphetamines and first-degree drug sale for more than 10 grams of meth within a 90-day period. She also pleaded not guilty to a fifth-degree drug possession charge and failure to appear in court, both felonies.
Police investigated Fisher from Aug. 7 to Aug. 22, 2012, when a confidential informant bought varying amounts of meth from Fisher on six occasions for more than a total of $1,000.
Another court complaint states an August 2012 traffic stop uncovered two bags of marijuana and led the officer to Couture’s house, where she admitted to having methamphetamine and weed. The officer reportedly found 2.8 grams of meth and 0.9 grams of weed.
Fisher was arrested on Nov. 30 when officers forced their way into a home in the 2100 block of 16th Street SE and reportedly found 0.7 grams of meth, numerous pipes, capsules, tubing, a digital scale, 10 cell phones and a box of the American Legion’s pull tabs. She pleaded not guilty to fifth-degree drug possession in December in that case.
