, sit up in the back of the van. She appeared disoriented and confused and said that she had been sleeping. When asked why she as at that address,
she said she didn’t know, and thought she was in Minneapolis. She
became agitated and said she had been with
two other people and didn’t know why they had left her there. She said the van belonged to her but that she didn’t have keys for it. As officers spoke with Shenton, they saw a Minnesota license plate in the pas
senger area of the van that had been altered from 157-JXY to 467-DXY. Shenton was asked to get out and when she did, officers saw a blue pill on the seat where she had been sitting. The officer examined the pill and determined that it as Adderall, a schedule II controlled substance. Shenton admitted the pill was Adderall and belonged to her, but claimed she had a prescription. However, she was unable to provide the name of the doctor, the size of the pill, the prescription container, or the pharmacy where she had filled the prescription she claimed to have. Shenton was arrested and declined to be interviewed.
The pill was examined by the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office who determined that it was Adderall, which
contains Amphetamine, a schedule II controlled substance.
