Two Ketchikan locals face felony drug possession and distribution charges in two separate cases heard today in court.
Brooke Putman, 36 years old, faces two counts of misconduct involving controlled substances, B felonies, and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, an A misdemeanor.
According to court documents, Putman sold eight grams of methamphetamine to a police informant on Sept. 3 from her apartment on Schoenbar Road. Police served a search warrant of Putman’s home on Tuesday and allegedly found marijuana and methamphetamine paraphernalia in the apartment, where four minors live. Putman allegedly told police that she let two older children, ages 15 and 17, smoke marijuana in the apartment.
In an unrelated case, Freddie Williams Jr., 56 years old, also faces felony drug charges – two counts of misconduct involving controlled substances in the third degree, B felonies.
According to court documents, Williams sold approximately 15 grams of methamphetamine in a controlled drug deal on Sept. 10, and accepted a controlled cash payment of $2,800 10 days later. Police obtained a search warrant for an Alaska Marine Lines shipment of Williams’ belongings, and said they found 110 grams of methamphetamine on Tuesday. Williams allegedly told police the boxes containing the drugs were sent to him from Washington State. A search warrant on his home also allegedly revealed $4,000 in cash.
Putman’s bail was set at $5,000 cash, and Williams’ bail was set at $50,000 cash. Both are scheduled to appear again in court on Oct. 3.
