Woman charged with flushing meth pipe down the toilet

A 46-year-old Minot woman is accused of flushing a methamphetamine pipe down the toilet when police went to her trailer on Wednesday evening.

Amy Anne Feland Anderson is charged with Class A misdemeanor tampering with evidence, according to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court.

Police say that they went to the trailer at 625 15th Street SE to serve a gaming ward warrant through McLean County. Police looked through the trailer window and saw Anderson sitting on the couch smoking a pipe. Matthew Pappenfus wrote in the affidavit that he knocked on the door and a man answered and said Anderson was not there. Pappenfus told the man he saw Anderson through the window smoking and directed them not to do anything with the pipe. Three minutes later Anderson came to the door and told Pappenfus that she broke the pipe and flushed it down the toilet. She admitted to smoking marijuana earlier in the day and later meth.

Court records show that she is charged in district court in McLean County with Class C felony violation of state gaming rules. A warrant was issued for her arrest on Feb. 6. That warrant was served on her Wednesday at the Ward County Jail.
