CASPER, Wyo. — A 41-year-old woman faces two felony charges after investigators say they found 453 grams of suspected methamphetamine during a search of her home in Evansville.

The charges come following an investigation into the suspected use and distribution of controlled substances, according to an affidavit filed by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation.

Since March, three controlled drug purchases were made in Evansville by a special agent with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, according to an affidavit filed by DCI.

Amber Mondragon was identified as the source, according to a DCI special agent. The execution of a search warrant at Mondragon’s home on June 20 also yielded a digital scale, packaging for distribution, U.S. currency, and firearms. Additional charges may be filed, DCI said.

Mondragon faces a charge of conspiracy to deliver methamphetamine, which carries a possible penalty of 20 years’ imprisonment, a fine of not more than $25,000.00, or both, according to Wyoming Statute (35-7-1031).

Possession of methamphetamine in an amount over 3 grams is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000, according to W.S. 1031 (c)(i).
