A 26-year-old Prairie du Chien woman has been charged in Crawford County Circuit Court with one count of possession of methamphetamine.

Christine Marie Barnhart faces up to 3.5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted.

According to the criminal complaint, a baggie containing a white powdery substance accidentally dropped from Barnhart’s hand and landed on the self-checkout stand as she was paying for merchandise at Wal-Mart in the town of Bridgeport. Barnhart left the baggie behind and it was turned over to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department.

When later questioned by a deputy, Barnhart admitted that the baggie contained meth, the complaint said.
