Suspect allegedly admits to trying to sell substances

A Washburn woman was arrested in Wheaton on Friday after allegedly admitting to attempting to sell controlled substances found in her vehicle.

Lee Ann Mahurin, 36, of Washburn, is charged with delivery of a controlled substance.

According to a probable cause report filed by Clint Danforth, officer with the city of Wheaton, at about 12:52 a.m. on Friday, Mahurin was stopped for a traffic violation. Danforth said she was in possession of a set of digital scales, a baggie that contained a crystal-like rock substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine, a glass pipe with white residue, a syringe, a marijuana pipe with residue and more baggies.

"Lee Ann admitted that she was trying to sell this off to make some money," Danforth said in the statement.

Mahurin is being held in the Barry County jail on a cash-only bond of $20,000. She was arraigned on Monday, and a disposition hearing is set for July 20 at 8:30 a.m. in the courtroom of Judge Robert Foulke.
