FARGO - Wanda Helen Thompson told a North Dakota Highway Patrol trooper she was the Fargo-Moorhead area's nicest drug dealer when she was arrested last October following a traffic stop on Interstate 94.

On Monday, the Moorhead woman pleaded guilty in Cass County District Court to a felony charge of possessing methamphetamine, and she was sentenced to 360 days behind bars with all but 45 days of that sentence suspended. She was also given credit for having already served the 45 days.

The charge stemmed from a traffic stop Oct. 17, when a trooper noticed the car Thompson, who was 49 when she was arrested,  was driving had expired tabs. After discovering Thompson's license was suspended, the trooper searched her and found a meth pipe in her pocket. A search of the car revealed nearly 10 grams of meth in a makeup bag.
