Two women charged with dealing heroin

TRAVERSE CITY — Area authorities issued arrest warrants for two women who they contend sold heroin to an informant.

Amy Kathleen Morrison, 31, or Rapid City and Julia Ann Payne, 31, of Cadillac, both face two charges of delivery or manufacture of a controlled substance less than 50 grams, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Morrison also faces a charge of being a habitual offender, fourth offense, which upon conviction could result in a life sentence.

Morrison has two prior convictions for forgery in Kalkaska County dating to 2006, and a 2012 conviction for a prisoner possessing contraband in jail, also in Kalkaska County.

The Traverse Area Narcotics Team reported in an affidavit that their informant contacted Morrison about buying heroin and then met Payne in the parking lot of the Turtle Creek Casino to make the buy on June 13. Narcotics officers observed the transaction. The informant made a similar purchase again on June 26, this time from both Payne and Morrison in the casino parking lot.
