Minot man gets 12 years in federal prison on drug, gun and money laundering charges


A Minot man is heading to federal prison following his sentencing on numerous drug, gun and money laundering charges.

Dennis Allen Corwin, 37, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Daniel Hovland to 12 1/2 years, followed by five years of supervised release.

In the summer of 2016, law enforcement officials identified Dennis Corwin as a leader of an organization distributing methamphetamine in North Dakota.

Law enforcement was able to arrange purchases of methamphetamine in Minot and Bismarck from Corwin.

After Corwin was arrested in Bismarck, approximately five pounds of methamphetamine and 30 firearms were located between his vehicle and shop in Minot.

Further investigation revealed the drug organization had transported in excess of 70 pounds of methamphetamine from Mexico to North Dakota.

This case was investigated by the Berthold Police Department, Ward County Narcotics Task Force, Drug Enforcement Administration, Homeland Security Investigations, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
