Miller County woman faces child endangerment and drug charges
MILLER COUNTY, Mo. (KMIZ)
A Tuscumbia woman has been charged after the Miller County Sheriff's Office says she was found with fentanyl on Monday.
Chanda Stouch, 50, is charged with endangering the welfare of a child, delivery of a controlled substance except 35 grams or less and possession of a controlled substance.
She is being held at the Miller County Jail on a $75,000 bond. An arraignment was held Thursday at the Miller County Courthouse. A case review is scheduled for 9 a.m. Wednesday, April 5.
The Mid-Missouri Drug Task Force and Miller County Sheriff's deputies stopped Stouch around 1:30 p.m. Monday on eastbound Highway 54 at Allen Road.
During the stop, Stouch allegedly admitted that methamphetamine was in the vehicle, according to a press release. Deputies searched the vehicle and found methamphetamine, about 107 fatal doses of fentanyl and pills inside a "Hello Kitty" container. A 10-year-old child was also present in the vehicle.
