Warrant arrest of suspect in meth sale
Authorities booked a Forest Lake resident this week on charges stemming from an incident in September, when she allegedly sold methamphetamine to an undercover East Central Drug Task Force investigator. Marion Marie Baca is charged with felony sale and fleeing, and a misdemeanor for providing false information when detained. Court documents say 28- year-old Marion Marie Baca, Forest Lake, met the task force buyer at a location in Stacy and the purchase was made using a cache of pre-inventoried bills ($800). The drug task force member bought 11.9 grams of methamphetamine, the complaint states. Baca was arrested by state patrol and a Chisago County deputy as she drove away on I-35 immediately after the alleged sale last fall. She was processed, charged and last week was re-apprehended on the warrants.
