Guilty plea in methamphetamine conspiracy case


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A man accused of trying to run over a Bismarck police officer last year has pleaded guilty to federal drug charges.

Twenty-three-year-old Ulises Villalobos-Alvarado was originally charged in South Central District Court with attempted murder for the January 2018 encounter as he fled from the officer who then shot him in the arm.

Charges in district court were later dropped, as a federal drug case against Villalobos-Alvarado developed. Prosecutors believe Villalobos-Alvarado and co-defendant Juan Nunez were involved with a California street gang that had been mailing methamphetamine to North Dakota. Both Villalobos-Alvarado and Nunez signed plea agreements with federal prosecutors.

Villalobos-Alvarado pleaded guilty Wednesday to a number of charges, including conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. Nunez pleaded guilty last week.
