MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – An 18-year-old high school student in Burnsville is accused of possessing trace amounts of heroin and Lorazepam, police said.

Paige Chamley, a student at Burnsville High School, has been charged with two felony counts of drug possession. If convicted of both counts, she could face up to 10 years in prison and/or $20,000 in fines, authorities said.

According to a criminal complaint, authorities found trace amounts of heroin in Chamley’s car after a school employee saw her smoking a cigarette. It was in a search for more cigarettes that authorities found a zipped bag containing a plastic spoon and a syringe, both of which were found to contain trace amounts of heroin, according to tests performed by the St. Paul Police Department Crime Laboratory.

Authorities also found a straw in Chamley’s car that had trace amounts of Lorazepam on it, the complaint said.

Chamley is currently in custody.
