North Pole woman enters plea to drug charge

Posted: Thursday, June 14, 2001

FAIRBANKS (AP) -- A North Pole woman arrested after a raid on a methamphetamine laboratory in January has pleaded no contest to one count of second-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance.

Candra Gilbert, 33, entered the plea this week in Palmer Superior Court.

Methamphetamine is an addictive stimulant also known as speed. Labs that produce it are dangerous because of the volatility of the ingredients.

Gilbert and two Wasilla men were arrested in a raid of a meth lab in Wasilla.

At the time she was free on bail awaiting trial in a case that followed a raid on a suspected meth lab in Ester, just south of Fairbanks, in September 1999.

According to Palmer prosecutor Jack Smith, Gilbert will serve five years in prison as part of her plea agreement.

Charges in the Ester case were dropped.
