    Woman charged under pseudoephedrine law
    A River Falls woman has been charged with a felony under a law aimed at curbing the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

    A River Falls woman has been charged with a felony under a law aimed at curbing the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

    Summer M. Morton-Eckardt, 30, 417 River Hills Rd., posted a $2,000 signature bond at an initial appearance last Thursday (March 18) on one count of purchasing an illegal amount of pseudoephedrine.

    The criminal complaint alleged Morton-Eckardt purchased the non-prescription drug from a number of pharmacies in Pierce and St. Croix Counties on different occasions between April 26 and May 18, 2009.

    Her suspicious activity was reported to authorities by a Freeman Drug employee in River Falls. The investigation revealed she made seven transactions in St. Croix County and five in Pierce County pharmacies over the 23-day period for a total of more than 31 grams of the drug.

    Morton-Eckardt told investigators she purchased the drug because she had a bad cold and was taking two to four tablets a day, according to the complaint.

    Court records said she underwent surgery at a cardiac unit in the Twin Cities on Jan. 4 that delayed her court appearance.

    A Wisconsin law effective Oct. 1, 2005 limited the purchase of over-the-counter drugs that contain pseudoephedrine to 7.5 grams in a 30-day period. Pseudoephedrine is a necessary ingredient in making methamphetamine. It is also contained in popular cold medicines that are required to be displayed behind the counter at pharmacies in Wisconsin.
