During her appearance in court Norton was given bond amount of $15,000.
According to paperwork filed in the case Norton was identified to the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, by a confidential informant, as a source of heroin in the Cheyenne area. It’s reported that on November 10th, 2019 an informant also told agents that Norton was going to sell heroin to individuals in Laramie County.
The affidavit goes on to say that agents conducted surveillance of Norton, and that the suspect had a warrant for her arrest through The Laramie County Court, on a Bond Revocation, from an earlier charge of Felony Possession of Heroin.
Following the surveillance, agents attempted to arrest Norton with the assistance of the Wyoming Highway Patrol. A person driving the vehicle where Norton was identified as a passenger, failed to yield to a Wyoming Highway Patrol Trooper and drove westbound on Fox Farm.
Due to the suspect vehicle traveling through a residential area the pursuit was terminated.
Court documents say that DCI agents located the car shortly after the pursuit was terminated near the corner of Leishar and Snyder in a driveway of a residence. Norton was taken into custody near the location, without reported incident.
Investigators report, during an interview, Norton claims to have begun purchasing one ounce quantities of heroin around September, 2019, which she then used and distributed to individuals in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Norton is reportedly told investigators that prior to being stopped by agents, she had sold more than three grams of heroin to an individual for approximately $700.00. Court records go on to say that Norton also admitted to selling a half a gram for $100.00 to another individual.
Investigators say that Norton consented to a brief search of her phone which showed text messages between herself and what is believed to be a buyer, that agents said corroborated her statement.
According to the affidavit, Norton also admitted to purchasing one-half ounce of methamphetamine which she used and distributed, from an individual in Cheyenne.
Norton is set to face a Preliminary Hearing at a later date to determine if her case will be bound over.
All of those cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filings from the Laramie County District Attorney’s Office.
