2-year sentence in Minot drug bust

MINOT, N.D. – A Minot man will serve two years in prison following his drug arrest last month.

Fifty-two-year-old Larkie Davis pleaded guilty Monday to a charge of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver. In exchange for his plea, the state dropped three other counts against him.

Court records indicate that a North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation officer arrested Davis on Aug. 16 near 6th Avenue and 8th Street NW in Minot following a report of possible drug activity.

Officers found a black pouch in Davis’ car with 14 grams of methamphetamine and one gram of marijuana, along with cash and a digital scale.

Judge Todd Cresap sentenced Davis to five years, with three suspended, followed by three years of supervised probation.

He will receive credit for 20 days served.

Davis could also have his probation revoked from previous case files.
