Erinn Morgan Smith
Erinn Morgan Smith faces two counts of felony drug possession, felony aggravated robbery of a controlled substance, felony theft against an at-risk person by someone in a position of trust and petty offense possession of drug paraphernalia.
Windsor police contacted Smith at 3:45 p.m. at the patient’s residence in the 7300 block of Ballcarrick Court, and discovered a bottle of morphine pills with a dosage of 100 milligrams per five milliliters inside Smith’s backpack in her Subaru station wagon, an arrest affidavit for Smith said.
Officers Robert Ball and Byron Kastilahn spoke with Smith and Suzanne Yoke, who had called police to the home after she noticed Smith acting strange and suspected her of stealing the drugs, the affidavit said.
Smith failed to notice Kastilahn as he approached the women on the porch of the residence, she was not making sense as she spoke with Yoke, and Yoke had to point to Kastilahn so Smith saw the police officer was present, the affidavit said.
