District Court

Kandiyohi County

- Martin Gregorio Munoz, 25, of Pennock, pleaded guilty Thursday to a fifth-degree drug sale charge for selling 7.8 grams of marijuana to a CEE-VI Drug Task Force in December.

He will be sentenced Dec. 10.

The charge was filed after Dec. 26, 2012, when the informant met Munoz at an intersection in Pennock and sold him the marijuana. The informant identified Munoz by his photo.

- Amanda Annette Alonso, 19, of Willmar, pleaded guilty to a fifth-degree drug possession charge for cocaine and methamphetamine found during a traffic stop in March.

As part of a plea agreement, the charge was reduced from third-degree and two petty misdemeanor charges of marijuana and paraphernalia possession will be dismissed. She will be sentenced Dec. 17.

The charges were filed after March 22, when Alonso was a passenger in a sport utility vehicle stopped by Kandiyohi County sheriff’s deputies around 10:50 p.m. near the county fairgrounds because the vehicle did not stop at a stop sign.

 The deputies smelled marijuana in the vehicle and questioned the driver and Alonso, who said she had marijuana in her purse. She handed over the handbag and the deputy found a bag of marijuana in the purse. A further search of the purse revealed 2 grams of meth and 2.4 grams of cocaine, along with more bags of marijuana for a total of 27.5 grams. Officers also searched the vehicle and found a partially smoked marijuana joint in the ashtray.

The driver, who is not currently charged in the case, appeared to be impaired and told deputies that he had smoked marijuana earlier in the day and that he did not believe there was marijuana or paraphernalia in the vehicle.
