A Northfield woman has pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to trafficking methamphetamine.

Kristina Blake, 29, is scheduled to be sentenced in Concord on Nov. 21.

According to court records and witness statements, police officers made contact with Blake and Daniel Irving, who were traveling in a vehicle near a Concord convenience store on Sept. 19, 2018. Officers later executed a search warrant that uncovered more than five grams of methamphetamine and two firearms in the vehicle. In addition, authorities seized drug paraphernalia, including a glass mirror, digital scale, a ledger, syringes and plastic baggies.

Irving previously pleaded guilty on July 1 and is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 10.

“The distribution of methamphetamine puts public health and safety at great risk,” U.S. Attorney Scott Murray said in a statement. “This is a dangerous drug that should be recognized as a rising threat to our community. In order to deter traffickers, we will work closely with our law enforcement partners to identify, arrest, and prosecute those who are responsible for its sale.”
