Bismarck couple facing charges for drug crimes

Engaged couples in North Dakota often spend a considerable amount of time with one another. Much of that time is typically spent in preparation for their wedding and the subsequent life they will build together. Unfortunately, one Bismarck couple was discovered together in their home by police officers and now face multiple charges for alleged drug crimes.

Bismarck Police report that a 24-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman were arrested at their resident for the apparent distribution of methamphetamine. Information that led to the arrest evidently came from an accused meth dealer. The informant had been detained by police in an earlier operation. A search warrant was obtained, and officers reportedly discovered methamphetamine, marijuana and a vial of THC residue. Also located were plastic baggies, digital scales and pipes with residue.

Supposedly, distribution of the drugs was indicated by the way they were packaged at the scene. The man and woman face a variety of charges, including felony conspiracy to deliver meth and felony possession with intent to manufacture or deliver meth and marijuana. They were also charged with unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and other misdemeanors. If convicted, the felony drug charges are punishable by $20,000 and up to 10 years in prison.

Being charged with drug crimes in North Dakota is a serious matter that could have a considerable negative affect on someone's life. It would be wise to seek the guidance of a respected criminal defense lawyer. An experienced attorney will determine if search warrants were executed legally and if all evidence in a case was obtained properly. A defense team will work diligently to present a strong defense for their client.
