Law enforcement find 276 grams of cocaine in a cracker box during traffic stop
Law enforcement arrested and charged a man last week after they found more than 200 grams of cocaine in a cracker box inside a car during a traffic stop.
The North Dakota Highway Patrol made a traffic stop on Thursday that ended in hundreds of grams of narcotics and a stolen gun taken into evidence.
The affidavit says troopers searched the car after smelling marijuana.
During the search police found a small amount of marijuana and a Goldfish snack cracker box with five large plastic baggies containing more than 250 grams of cocaine. Officials also found a digital scale, heat sealer and multiple heat seal baggies.
Metro Area Narcotic Task Force agents say the street value of the cocaine found is between $27,000 and $57,000.
Police arrested 30-year-old Deandre Jones.
Officials conducted a search warrant of Jones’ home and found a pink children’s backpack with more than 150 grams of meth, more than 2.6 grams of cocaine, more than 3 grams of tar heroin, 27 Xanax pills, more than 50 MDMA pills and stolen gun out of Georgia.
Jones is charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine, possession with intent to deliver meth, possession with intent to deliver hallucinogenic substance, possession with intent to deliver heroin, theft and possession of a firearm, child neglect and unlawful possession of a firearm.
A judge set his bond at $200,000 in cash.
