Fargo woman sentenced for receiving meth through the mail

Christine Luetzow

FARGO – A woman accused of scheming to deal methamphetamine after receiving it through the mail was sentenced Monday in Cass County District Court.

Christine Luetzow, 28, of Fargo was ordered to complete drug court and serve two years on supervised probation. She was credited with spending 74 days in jail.

On Feb. 20, a man named Matthew Hedstrom drove Luetzow to the post office at 1455 32nd St. S., court documents stated. When Luetzow went to retrieve a package containing 22 grams of meth from a post office box, waiting officers attempted to arrest Hedstrom, but he drove off, court documents said.

Luetzow was arrested and charged with felony criminal attempt. She pleaded guilty to that charge Monday, and in another case, she entered guilty pleas to felony charges of manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and endangerment of a child. A misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled substance was dismissed as part of a plea deal.

Hedstrom, 35, of Fargo was later apprehended. He faces felony charges of reckless endangerment and fleeing a peace officer. He is set to go to trial Sept. 23.
