DETROIT LAKES, MN--A Detroit Lakes woman must serve prison time following drug convictions for two separate arrests.
Sentenced this week in Becker County District Court, 31 year old Ashley Mortenson was convicted on a 3rd degree drug sale stemming from selling over 1.9 grams meth in October of 2017 to an informant working with the West Central Drug Task Force.
She was sentenced to 45 months in the State Prison at Shakopee. Mortenson was also handed a 51 month prison sentence this week for her conviction of 3rd degree drug possession after an arrest in October of 2018 by a Detroit Lakes Police Officer who was notified by agents working with the West Central Drug Task Force that a vehicle traveling from Minneapolis to Becker County was carrying meth.
The officer found 10 grams of meth in the vehicle in which Mortenson was traveling. Mortenson has a prior 3rd degree drug sale conviction from 2016.
