THIEF RIVER FALLS-Two Goodridge, Minn., woman face serious prison time after being accused of bringing meth and marijuana into Pennington County.

Drug task force agents said they found 44 grams of meth, almost 15 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in a vehicle driven by Kristi Arlene Anderson, 60, according to court documents. Anderson and her passenger, Tammy Jean Hunt, 64, were arrested during the Oct. 5 traffic stop in Pennington County, the court documents said.

The two woman were charged with a second-degree controlled substance crime, a felony that carries a maximum punishment of 40 years in prison. They appeared Monday in Pennington County District Court.

Court documents detail how officers investigated tips from concerned residents and other sources. One person said Anderson had driven to the Twin Cities to purchase drugs, and photos taken of her bank account showed large amounts of cash being withdrawn and deposited into accounts, according to court documents.

In one instance, the account went from $54 to $30,118 over a two-day period in September, and a slip for a withdrawal of $28,000 was dated several days later, according to court documents.
