CEDAR CITY — A Cedar City woman was arrested Sunday after police found her in possession of heroin, methamphetamine and other drugs.
The incident began when Cedar City Police Officer Z. Adams and an Adult Probation and Parole officer responded to a home located on 800 West in Cedar City to check in on an offender, Adams wrote in a probable cause statement supporting the arrest. Once inside the residence, Adams made contact with the offender’s roommate, 21-year-old Janae Kawaguchi.
“She admitted there were illegal drugs in her room and she had used them recently,” Adams said in the statement. “She consented to have officers search her room.”
During the search, officers located several different drugs inside Kawaguchi’s purse, Adams said in the statement. These drugs included: amphetamine dextroamphetamine, usually used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; hydrocodone acetaminophen, used to relieve moderate to severe pain; a bag containing a crystal substance consistent with methamphetamine; several individually rolled balloons of heroin; and a meth pipe.
“Janae admitted she is selling the heroin balloons for $30 a balloon,” Adams said in the statement. “She stated she had already sold two balloons since she got the heroin.”
Kawaguchi was arrested and booked into the Iron County Jail without further incident, Adams said in the statement.
She was charged with one second-degree felony for possession of heroin with intent to distribute; three third-degree felonies for possession of methamphetamine, amphetamine dextroamphetamine and hydrocodone acetaminophen; and one class B misdemeanor for possession of drug paraphernalia. Her bail for release stands at $20,000.
Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
