Canadian Woman Pleads Guilty to Drug Charges in Southeast Missouri

APRIL 7, 2004 - Posted at 7:26 a.m. CDT

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A Canadian woman has pleaded guilty in southeast Missouri after a larger investigation turned up four million pseudo-ephedrine pills.  The drug is used in making illegal methamphetamine.

Authorities look for those who have illegal amounts of the ingredients needed to make meth in order to reduce production of the drug.

The woman from Ontario, Canada, 36-year-old Krystina Randles, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute pseudo-ephedrine.  She'll be sentenced July 15.

Prosecutors say Randles is among several people involved in an international effort to illegally sell the pills.  They say more than $1 million will be forfeited by other suspects.
