Two charged for allegedly selling meth to informant

WILLMAR -- Two people made their first court appearances Friday on first-degree drug sale charges for allegedly selling methamphetamine to a CEE-VI Drug Task Force informant.

Elijah Manuel Gomez, 32, and Chillice Ann Angrimson, 24, of Willmar, were both ordered held on $200,000 unconditional bail. Both face two first-degree drug sale charges and a third-degree drug possession charge in Kandiyohi County District Court. Both make their next appearance Aug. 30.

According to the complaints against Gomez and Angrimson, the informant for the drug task force purchased 11.7 grams of meth on Aug. 12 and 12.5 grams of meth on Aug. 18 at Angrimson's apartment, with Gomez bringing the drugs to the residence on both occasions.

A search warrant was executed on the apartment about an hour after the Aug. 18 purchase. Agents found both defendants there and found more than $1,300 in cash, found to be previously recorded task force funds used to buy meth, on Gomez or his property. They also found a total of 4.3 grams of meth stored in several locations in the apartment, including in the ceiling and in a safe, plus scales, drug paraphernalia, drug notes and "owe" sheets.

Gomez has a prior fifth-degree drug conviction in December 2005.
