ND Grand Jury Indicts Michigan Man on Drug Charges
FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - A North Dakota grand jury has indicted a Michigan man on drug charges, after the seizure of deadly fentanyl with a street value of $160,000. U.S. Attorney Drew Wrigley says 28-year-old Barry Brown, Jr., of Taylor, MI, is now charged with conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, and possession with intent to distribute oxycodone, fentanyl, and fentanyl-related substance.
The indictment unsealed Thursday alleges police served a search warrant at Brown’s Bismarck hotel room last month and found approximately 2,000 opiate pills that were designed to look like actual oxycodone, but contained fentanyl. Agents also seized $66,000 in cash.
Wrigley says the arrest is another hit against the pushers who he alleges have targeted North Dakota’s Native American communities.
