2 men arrested for drug crimes after routine traffic stop

North Dakota police officers make numerous stops for traffic violations every day. Drivers may be routinely pulled over for speeding, running red lights or having non-working headlights. However, on occasion, police may discover something different during a stop than they anticipated. Two Oshkosh men were recently charged with drug crimes after officials allegedly discovered marijuana in their vehicle.

The Stutsman County Sheriff's Office reported that they stopped a pickup truck for a minor traffic violation on an interstate. Officers then apparently searched under the topper in the back of the truck. In the course of the search, police indicated that they discovered over 475 pounds of marijuana. The estimated street value of the substance was over $3 million, according to the police chief.

A 36-year-old man and a 37-year-old man were arrested and appeared in district court. They both face charges of misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and felony intent to delivery marijuana. Both men remain in jail in lieu of bond set at $200,000 each. A traffic stop in Dec. 2017 yielded the discovery of almost 200 pounds of marijuana near Jamestown.

Someone facing charges of drug crimes in North Dakota should act in an expedient manner to present the strongest defense possible against the charges. It would be important to minimize the potential negative impact on a person's life as well as those of his or her family members. A knowledgeable criminal defense attorney can be a helpful ally throughout this process. A lawyer will examine all evidence in the case to determine if it was gathered legally according to procedure, then mount a rigorous defense for the client.
