Astoria Police filed additional charges against one of the three people arrested Wednesday at an Astoria apartment where methamphetamine was found.
Jessica Gassner, 37, of Astoria, is being charged with tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution. She was originally arrested for possession and distribution of methamphetamine after police served a search warrant at the apartment on 1824 Exchange St.
During the search, Gassner’s phone and tablet were seized. When detectives went to forensically examine the phone, police said, they found Gassner had remotely wiped the phone. As soon as police turned on the phone, it reformatted itself.
Along with Gassner, Blaine Ogier was arrested and charged with distribution of a controlled substance — methamphetamine. Krystal Wilson was arrested on a warrant from Seaside Municipal Court.
Officers found methamphetamine and items that had been traded for methamphetamine in the apartment.
