Judge Jeffrey Kritzer issued the sentence.

Court documents state police met with a confidential reliable informant (CRI) on Dec. 21, 2017, about purchasing one ounce of methamphetamine from Boonreuang. The CRI was searched and provided with an audio transmitter and buy money. The police then monitored the CRI’s vehicle as it went to the 300 block of 11th Street Northeast. Police then observed a 1998 Ford Taurus park near the CRI, and the CRI entered the Ford Taurus’s back seat, where he purchased methamphetamine.

The CRI then met with police at a predetermined location and surrendered 28.177 grams, just shy of one ounce, of methamphetamine. The CRI also said Boonreuang was accompanied by a male, later identified as Cristian Andres Wilborn, 20, of Austin. He said he gave the money to Boonreuang and Wilborn handed him the methamphetamine.

In addition to the 58 months, Kritzer sentenced Boonreuang to two concurrent sentences of 12 months and one day in the Minnesota Correctional Facility in Shakopee for felony fifth-degree drug possession convictions, for which she was on probation.
