North Pole couple indicted on meth charges

Posted: Sunday, October 06, 2002

FAIRBANKS (AP) -- A North Pole couple is facing a combined 14 counts of drug charges, nearly six months after authorities raided their home searching for a methamphetamine lab.

Kim Nelson, 45, was indicted Thursday on 13 charges while his wife, Jenny R. Nelson, 48, was indicted on six drug charges.

According to the indictment, Kim Nelson sold methamphetamine and oxycodone to an informant.

Most of the buys followed a fresh batch of methamphetamine produced by Kim Nelson, said drug investigator Alaska State Trooper Teague Widmier. Widmier is a member of a local branch of the statewide drug enforcement that served the search warrant on the couple's home May 16.

During the raid, investigators found Jenny Nelson in possession of methamphetamine and Kim Nelson in possession of oxycodone and both of them with hydrocodone, according to the indictment. Widmier said oxycodone and hydrocodone are found in prescription painkillers, but also are sold on the streets as drugs.
