A Marshall woman faces felony charges of possession of a controlled substance except 35 grams or less of marijuana and first degree endangering the welfare of a child involving drugs, following an incident where a witness claimed to have been handed a box containing drugs by the woman's child.

Nichole Deanne Guyer, 22, was charged with both class C felony charges as well as a class A misdemeanor for unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. According to the probable cause statement in her case, the box that the child possession of contained multiple small baggies, one containing a crystal substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.

Further search of Guyer's residence uncovered a digital scale, three glass pipes, and several more baggies containing crystal substance that was consistent in content and appearance with the crystals found in the box, the report states.
