FORT EDWARD — A Glens Falls woman pleaded guilty to a felony charge Thursday for possession of a large quantity of the illegal hallucinogen/stimulant Ecstasy.

Jeannie M. Morgan-Smith, 49, pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance in connection with a September seizure in Hudson Falls.

Morgan-Smith was charged after State Police stopped a vehicle she was in on Main Street because it had a headlight out and the driver did not signal when making a turn, police said.

Morgan-Smith was a passenger in the vehicle, and police developed probable cause to search it and discovered 750 capsules of Ecstasy, which is also known as “Molly.”

She was also charged in early August with unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, a felony, and misdemeanor criminal possession of meth manufacturing materials, according to Glens Falls Police. Charges in that case are still pending.

Morgan-Smith, who has an extensive criminal record, faces up to 9 years in state prison when sentenced Dec. 1. She is being held in Washington County Jail.
