A 50-year-old Billings woman accused of being the intended recipient of seven pounds of marijuana mailed through Federal Express was charged Thursday in District Court.
Mildred Ann Strike appeared for arraignment in District Court and pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of criminal possession with intent to distribute. Judge Susan Watters continued bond at $5,000, which Strike had posted.
According to court records, a Federal Express employee called Billings police on Nov. 21 about a suspicious package. Police obtained a search warrant and found 7 seven pounds of marijuana in the package.
Officers then delivered the package to Strike at her Hardrock Lane residence and arrested her. A search of the woman's residence turned up additional marijuana, drug paraphernalia and more than $800 in cash, court records state.
