Stillwater Couple Charged in 'Phantom Finger' Case Plead Guilty to Possessing Meth

Ashley Marie Brooker, 23, and Nicholas Thomas Doyle, 25, both of Stillwater, pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine. They will be sentenced later this summer.

The have pleaded guilty to felony drug charges.

Ashley Marie Brooker, 23, pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of a controlled substance and fifth-degree possession of methamphetamine last month. She is scheduled to be sentenced on June 15.

Nicholas Thomas Doyle, 25, pleaded guilty to fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance. His sentencing date is scheduled for Aug. 2.

According to the criminal complaint:

Stillwater police responded to the parking lot after an emergency medical technician (EMT) reported seeing an "extremely agitated" woman flailing her arms.

When approached by the EMT, Brooker said she was looking for a finger as she frantically searched the passenger's side of the vehicle.

The EMT noticed what was described in the complaint as "severe pock marks, scarring and scabs on the woman's face" and believed her behavior to be consistent with methamphetamine use. The EMT then called police.

Responding officers questioned Brooker and were told that her boyfriend, Doyle, severed a finger and that she believed it to be somewhere inside the vehicle.

Officers found the cap to a hypodermic syringe on the driver's seat when Brooker got out of the car. She then admitted to having a syringe full of what was later found to be methamphetamine in the driver's console. 

Meanwhile, a second responding officer located a man inside the hospital fitting the description of Doyle. When questioned by police, Doyle said he cut his finger but did not sever it.

Doyle also admitted Brooker drove him to the hospital.

Police searched Doyle and found a hypodermic syringe cap in his left front pocket.

"People" use meth? At what point is this "Couple" locked up for good? Take a look meth users, you like what ya see?

Drugs are everywhere...Just because you live in "Stillwater", does not mean drugs do not exist here. If anything it seems worse..Half of these kids are drugging and driving all over town acting like idiots. I do not know if locking them up will do any good. It all needs to start at home....Even then it will be a huge step for our kids to make good choices.

Crank has flowed like a river through S-town since at least the 90's.
