275 grams of methamphetamine with a street value of nearly $10,000 was found through two separate traffic stops within the last week.
On June 26th around 5:00 p.m., a routine traffic stop was conducted on the 100 block of East Bowen Ave. A K9 unit was brought to the scene to conduct an air sniff around the vehicle. The K9 alerted, and after a search of the inside, officers found 69 grams of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. It carries a street value of more than $2,000. One 25-year-old Bismarck woman was taken into custody.
Then on June 30 at 8:40 p.m., officers located a vehicle with license plates linked to a reported stolen car out of Fargo. They then pulled the car over, to which it turned into a driveway on the 4000 block of North 19th Street. Three people were inside the vehicle and detained on scene. Consent to search the vehicle was given, and inside, officers found 206 grams of methamphetamine, worth over $7,000.
One of the passengers, a 37-year-old Bismarck man was arrested for theft of vehicle, possession of a controlled substance, and a warrant through Burleigh County. The other two, a 41-year-old Bismarck man and a 29-year-old Mandan woman were arrested for ingestion of a controlled substance and a driving under suspension warrant respectively.
