Two Ketchikan residents already facing felony drug charges were arrested on Friday.
According to the online Alaska State Troopers dispatch report, 34-year-old Angelina McDonald and 35-year-old Jason Allen Simpson were contacted at a home on North Tongass Highway after troopers saw Simpson driving a truck later found parked at that home. Simpson was wanted on multiple felony arrest warrants.
According to court documents, Troopers say McDonald was outside the home when they arrived, and told them nobody else was inside.
Troopers say they later found paraphernalia and heroin in McDonald’s vehicle. Simpson was found inside the home, according to court documents, and was taken into custody on the warrants.
McDonald was arrested and charged with felony hindering prosecution, fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance, and three counts of violating her conditions of release.
Both Simpson and McDonald were arrested in early December and charged with two counts each of felony drug possession. They allegedly were found with about 175 grams of heroin and 121 grams of methamphetamine.
McDonald was arrested again in mid-December and charged with violating conditions of release when she allegedly was found with heroin and prescription pills.
McDonald was arraigned on the new charges Saturday. Bail was set at $1,750.
