A Kansas City woman pleaded guilty Thursday to possessing a large amount of methamphetamine uncovered during a visit by probation officers.
Michelle L. Stevens, 47, was previously convicted of distributing methamphetamine, and the probation officers paid a visit to her Kansas City apartment last March.
The officers were conducting a “security sweep” of her apartment when they asked about another door adjacent to her apartment.
According to her plea agreement, Stevens told them it was a storage space.
Never miss a local story.
But it was actually another apartment and Stevens had a key.
The officers entered the second apartment and immediately called Kansas City police due to “the large amount of contraband discovered inside of the second apartment.”
Among items found in the “storage space” were more than three kilograms of methamphetamine, a .25-caliber handgun, $8,800 in cash, scales, plastic bags and several pieces of mail addressed to Stevens.
On Thursday, she pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Kansas City to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
Her sentencing is scheduled for May 30.
