A Palmer woman was arrested after troopers found her car stocked with 53 bags of methamphetamine packaged for sale, 23 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, a loaded handgun and $1,000 in cash, according to troopers.

Members of the Mat-Su Drug Unit, along with a K-9 dog, Chevron, stopped and seized the car of Aniska Demientieff, 27, during a drug investigation on Oct. 2, according to troopers. Demientieff was driving with a passenger on the Palmer-Wasilla Highway near Hemmer Road.

The next day, investigators served a warrant to search the vehicle, where they found the gun, cash and drugs, according to troopers.

Demientieff was arrested on multiple felony drug charges last Wednesday and taken to Mat-Su Pretrial facility. Her bail was set at $5,000, troopers said.

Troopers are still looking for the passenger of the car.

Demientieff bonded out of jail and was released last Thursday.
