ROCHESTER, Minn. – A two-day trial resulted in a guilty verdict in a case involving methamphetamine and a child.

Carrie Lynn Friese, 36 of Pine Island, was arrested in October 2017 and charged with 5th degree drug possession, storage of meth paraphernalia in the presence of a child, and child endangerment. Rochester police say they found more than two pounds of meth in her purse, which was near Friese’s nine-year-old child.

A jury convicted her on all three counts. Friese’s sentencing is scheduled for November 14.
