Posted: Sunday, November 24, 2002

A Klawock woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury on felony drug charges stemming from the sale of methamphetamine from her Klawock home.

The indictment charges Esther Ruiz-Heathers, 34, with possession of four ounces of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Anchorage. Ruiz-Heathers also allegedly used a 15-year-old boy to deliver three ounces of the drug to an informant working with law enforcement officers.

Following that delivery, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office, police searched the Klawock residence and allegedly found an additional ounce of methamphetamine as well as about $11,000 cash.
