Police: Eagle Lake Woman Found With Meth Claims “These Aren’t My Pants”

A 43-year-old woman from Eagle Lake stands accused of drug possession, although police say she claims it’s just a because of a mix up with pants.

According to the complaint, an agent with the Minnesota River Valley Drug Task Force went through the garbage of Jodi Lynn Redford after she set it out on the curb on August 17th. The agent allegedly found a baggie with the residue of methamphetamine and that discovery led to a search warrant at her residence.

Police say during the execution of the warrant, Redford was searched and a baggie with a trace amount of meth was found on her person. At that time, Redford allegedly said “These are not my pants, someone just gave them to me to put on.”

Authorities say a further search revealed miscellaneous drug paraphernalia throughout the residence, a digital scale and a “grinder.” Redford has two previous controlled substance crime convictions.

This is the second time in a month that a trash pull in Eagle Lake by agents of the local drug task force has led to criminal charges.
