Gaylord Woman Allegedly Growing Pot 23 Nov 11

A Gaylord woman made an appearance in Sibley County Court late last week on a felony controlled substance crime. 41-year-old Sally Ellen Robinette was arrested on October 18th after authorities discovered a total of 14 marijuana plants growing in her home. Authorities had been called to the Westgate Apartments in Gaylord on a noise complaint, but upon arrival smelled marijuana coming from Robinette’s apartment, and she consented to a search. That’s when police found the plants in her bedroom closet, along with growing equipment and other paraphernalia. She was also found to be in possession of prescription medication not prescribed to her. She was released without bail, and appeared for an omnibus hearing on Thursday. If convicted she faces up to 5 years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
