A 28-year-old Ottawa woman who was arrested Tuesday in the second wax marijuana discovery in the county is scheduled to appear in district court Monday afternoon to answer to drug charges.

Dominique Marie Cloutier was arrested this week during a raid of her home in the 1100 block of North Poplar Street, Jeff Richards, Franklin County sheriff, said. Detectives seized marijuana evidence including hashish, wax, and edibles, Richards said. He said detectives also found lip balm with THC, the first discovery in the county.

“It absorbs through their skin and they get high,” Richards said.

The Ottawa Police Department and Franklin County Sheriff’s Office served the search warrant after a long-term investigation involving the distribution of drugs, according to a sheriff’s office news release.

Cloutier has been charged with one felony count of attempted distribution of marijuana of more than 25 grams but less than 450 grams and possession of paraphernalia with intent to manufacture a controlled substance. Both are felonies. She was also charged with a misdemeanor of unlawfully obtaining the prescription drug, Clonidine, which treats attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Cloutier was released from the Franklin County Adult Detention Center on $15,000 bond Tuesday.

Richards said they don’t believe Cloutier’s intent was to manufacture wax, as they believed in the March 30 arrest of Mark Whiles. Wax, a marijuana concentrate, is reported to be the purest form of cannabis.

“We don’t believe somebody here was making it,” he said. “We just think they were distributing it.”

Two other Franklin County residents were arrested during Tuesday’s raid, but Richards said they were released because of the pending investigation.

Cloutier’s first court appearance is scheduled for 1 p.m. Monday in Franklin County District Court, 301 S. Main St., Ottawa, with Magistrate Judge Kevin Kimball presiding.

Bryan M. Hastert, an Ottawa attorney, has been appointed to represent Cloutier. Josh Smith, deputy county attorney, is scheduled as the prosecutor.

Lab personnel with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, Topeka, is listed as one of the potential witnesses to testify at the hearing, according to court records.
