Gema G. Thomas, 52, is being charged with a single count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
According to electronic court records, Thomas was charged October 2nd, arrested on October 5th, and then waived her right to a prosecution-by-indictment five days later.
The criminal information alleges that Thomas possessed and distributed at least fifty grams of methamphetamine in early July 2012.
Prosecutors want to seize the entire inventory of Bridal Gowns, Formal Wear, and Tuxedo Rentals at 213 Seward Street. They allege that the gowns were acquired with proceeds from Thomas’ meth sales.
According to state business records, Thomas is also the owner and operator of Peer Amid Beads and Southeast Artworks.
She was arraigned in U.S. District Court in Juneau on Wednesday and she is scheduled to go to trial in December.
