Medical call ends with drug charges

A call for help landed a Rosemount woman in jail after she admitted to using meth and marijuana to police . Andrea Delores Kinshaw faces drug charges after police responded to a call for medical help on Sept. 17.

Upon arriving at a Rosemount residence, police found Kinshaw pacing and breathing heavily, according to a criminal complaint filed in Dakota County. The complaint states that Kinshaw told police she was having a panic attack after ingesting marijuana and methamphetamine.

As the officer determined whether to call paramedics, Kinshaw handed over a small clear plastic bag, stating it was meth. The complaint states that police obtained verbal consent from Kinshaw to search the residence after paramedics arrived. No other illegal narcotics were confiscated.

The Dakota County Drug Task Force determined that the bag Kinshaw handed over, did contain methamphetamines.

If convicted of possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree, Kinshaw faces up to five years in prison and up to $10,000 fine.
