A 56-year-old Ketchikan woman faces felony drug charges after she allegedly had methamphetamine mailed to her home.
According to the Ketchikan Police Department, local officers worked with U.S. Postal Service Inspectors to complete the delivery to Roosevelt Drive. After the package was delivered on Friday afternoon, officers arrested Teresa R. Redman, charging her with third- and fourth-degree controlled-substance misconduct.
The package allegedly contained seven grams of methamphetamine.
Redman was arraigned on the charges over the weekend. Her next hearing is set for Oct. 1.
