Woman faces pot, Ecstasy drug charges

– A Fort Wayne woman faces three felony drug charges after police found nearly 10 pounds of marijuana and a small amount of Ecstasy at her north-side home last week.

Fort Wayne police, including officers from the vice and narcotics division, on April 2 searched the home of 27-year-old Kimberly Goller at 511 Greenlawn Ave., where they found the drugs, a 9 mm handgun and paraphernalia, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in Allen Superior Court.

Goller faces felony charges filed Tuesday of maintaining a common nuisance, marijuana possession and possession of a controlled substance, as well as a misdemeanor charge for the paraphernalia.

Fort Wayne police said they found a duffel bag with nine plastic bags of what appeared to be marijuana in them and another plastic bag in the living room with what appeared to be marijuana, totaling 9.7 pounds.

Police said the handgun was found in the bedroom and the Ecstasy was in the living room.

On the night of April 2, police investigating a nearby shooting found a large amount of blood at the front door of a home in the 500 block of Greenlawn.

When police responded that night to a report of shots fired in the 600 block of Florence Avenue, they did not know where the victim was until he showed up at a hospital with multiple gunshot wounds, including one to his left arm that likely shattered the arm, according to a police report.

Meanwhile, police at the scene of the shooting followed the blood trail to the house in the 500 block of Greenlawn, about three blocks away.

Goller’s address was listed in court documents as 511 Greenlawn Ave., but police reports from the night of the shooting do not give an exact address.

Fearing there were more victims in the Greenlawn home, police called out to anyone inside and entered when they did not hear a response, according to police narratives from that night.

As police searched the home, they found several empty plastic bags on the sofa in the living room and a large paper bag, similar to the kind used for yard waste, with a garbage bag in it in which police said they found marijuana.

The police report from the night of the shooting also mentions there were items in the basement of the home that “may need further investigating” by the vice and narcotics division.
