Sitka’s Superior Court sentenced a woman to jail last week for possessing heroin and methamphetamine valued at over $42,000.

According to court records, thirty-three year old Shammar Ferguson smuggled more than 88 grams of the drugs in her vagina during a flight from Seattle to Sitka this summer.

On Aug. 16, a week after Ferguson arrived, the Sitka Police received a report that  Ferguson and Lawrence Johnson Jr. were trespassing on a property on Andrew P. Hope St. When the police arrived, they found the heroin along with a digital scale containing multiple meth crystals.

The Sitka Superior Court sentenced Shammar Ferguson to 23 months in jail. This is Ferguson’s fourth felony conviction. The Court also sentenced Lawrence Johnson Jr. to serve six months in jail. This is his first conviction.
