A Wasilla woman was jailed late Friday for child endangerment when Alaska State Troopers found drugs in her vehicle, which also had two young children riding in it, troopers said.

A trooper stopped the Chevrolet Blazer because it had a headlight out. It was just before 11 p.m. in Wasilla, on the Parks Highway near Church Road, according to a trooper dispatch posted online. The driver, 37-year-old Karissa Zimin of Wasilla, had two children younger than 6 years old in the Blazer with her.

A trooper dog named Chevron helped sniff out a small amount of marijuana and crystal methamphetamine in Zimin's possession, troopers said.

Zimin faces two counts of fourth-degree drug misconduct, a count of sixth-degree drug misconduct and two counts of second-degree child endangerment. She was taken to Mat-Su Pre-Trial Facility in Palmer.
