Pair arrested in methamphetamine bust in New Town

NEW TOWN, N.D. - Two people face A-felony drug charges after New Town police found them with more than a half pound of methamphetamine during a routine traffic stop Monday night.

Prosecutors have charged 35-year-old Bobby Coleman, of Columbus, N.D., and 28-year-old Viktoria Moore, of Minot, with possession with intent to deliver/manufacture methamphetamine, 50 grams or more.

Investigators say that New Town police pulled over a vehicle around 11 p.m. near Highway 23 and 5th Street North for no taillights.

Officers smelled marijuana in the car, and a K9 alerted them to drugs.

Police found more than 254 grams of methamphetamine in a backpack in the backseat. Officers also found marijuana, drug paraphernalia, cell phones, and $1,100 in cash.

The pair will be arraigned Oct. 3, and face up to 20 years if convicted.
