A Duluth woman who allegedly brought methamphetamine to a court appearance waived her preliminary hearing Wednesday, Oct. 28, in Douglas County Circuit Court.

Cash bail of $400 was set and McMullin was taken into custody at the Douglas County Jail.
Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Nate Halverson reported searching the backpack and finding a hypodermic needle with liquid methamphetamine in it, a baggie containing 10.88 grams of methamphetamine, empty jewelers baggies and other drug paraphernalia.
Cash bond of $3,000 was set for McMullin in the methamphetamine case. She remained in custody at the Douglas County Jail Thursday, according to the online jail roster. If she is convicted, the possession charge carries a maximum penalty of 25 years of imprisonment and a fine of up to $100,000.
McMullin’s next court appearance was set for Nov. 16.
