Ketchikan woman pleads guilty to methamphetamine charge

Posted: Friday, January 24, 2003

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A Ketchikan woman has pleaded guilty to intent to distribute methamphetamine.

The U.S. Attorney's office in Anchorage says Lila R. Greer entered a guilty plea Thursday in U.S. District Court.

According to court documents, Greer took delivery of a package she believed to be methamphetamine in November 2001. She later learned that the substance inside was not methamphetamine. Law enforcement officers had intercepted the package and replaced the contents with a non-narcotic substance.

Greer faces a maximum of 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine. She will be sentenced on April 7.

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
