Two Grand Forks women who sold drugs to confidential informants pleaded guilty to charges Thursday afternoon.

Kayla Rose Bailey, 27, was sentenced to six months behind bars and two years of probation on a felony charge for delivering heroin and a misdemeanor count for owning drug paraphernalia.

Kaylee Sue Lembke, 30, will spend about four months in jail and two years on probation for selling heroin.

Both women allegedly sold heroin to confidential informants and were arrested June 8 along with five others for drug-related crimes . The Grand Forks Narcotics Task Force seized 15 grams of heroin, which is worth $9,000 in street value, during the arrests.

Bailey also allegedly sold heroin to a woman May 6, but the charges were dismissed.

Court documents said she and the woman met while visiting inmates at the correctional center, and Bailey agreed to sell her heroin. The woman planned to kill herself using the heroin, court documents said, and named Bailey as the seller when police visited her in the hospital after an overdose.
