A traffic stop that occurred Monday on Railroad Street in Killdeer quickly turned into the largest drug bust in Killdeer history, according to the Killdeer Police Department.
Dalton Holeman, 24, of Mandaree faces a litany of charges stemming from the incident, including possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute — considered a Class AA felony due of the amount of the substance — possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under a suspended license and giving false information to a police officer.
According to police reports, Holeman had 5.4 ounces of crystal meth in his possession, which has a street value of up to $40,000. He also had $500 in cash and a partial meth lab in his vehicle.
Holeman was arrested by Killdeer officers and transported to Southwest Multi-County Corrections Center in Dickinson. He will appear Wednesday for a bond hearing in Southwest Judicial District Court.
Dunn County State’s Attorney Pat Merriman said Tuesday that he wanted to congratulate Killdeer Police Chief Eric Braathen and his staff on their excellent work.
“That is the largest seizure anyone in Dunn County can remember,” Merriman added.
