FARMINGTON — Police said an Augusta woman was charged Monday night with driving 79 mph in a 40-mph zone on Wilton Road.

Katherine Marsters, 24, was traveling west on Route 2, also known as Wilton Road, just before 9 p.m., according to a report by Farmington police Sgt. Edward Hastings IV, police secretary Bonnie Pomeroy said.

Hastings saw her while parked in the Bouffards Furniture lot and clocked her at 30 mph over the speed limit, which is criminal speeding, Pomeroy said. It is a misdemeanor charge.

Masters was stopped near Comfort Inn in Wilton and told the officer she had a family medical emergency in Wilton, but eventually admitted that person wasn’t in Wilton, Pomeroy read from the report.

Marsters was taken to the Franklin County Detention Center in Farmington and released on $100 cash bail. She is scheduled to appear in court April 8, according to corrections officer.
