Felipe Guzman Jr., 34, was charged Oct. 7 with a Class-C felony count of possession of hash oil paraphernalia and a Class-B misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana paraphernalia, following his arrest by local officers in Killdeer last week.
Guzman waived his right to a preliminary hearing and pleaded not guilty to the charges in open court, according to records. He was subsequently released on bond.
Officers with the Killdeer Police Department, Dunn County Sheriff and Dunn/Mercer County Narcotics and Violent Crimes Task Force served a warrant around 10 a.m. Oct. 6 at a residence on the 100 block of First Avenue Northwest.
According to a court affidavit, reporting officer Daniel Holonen of the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office, and member of the narcotics task force, seized numerous items of paraphernalia and a planter box suspected in the growth of marijuana, and marijuana seeds wrapped in a wet paper towel and placed inside a bag.
Guzman admitted to police that there was paraphernalia inside the home.
Guzman is scheduled to appear back in court for an arraignment in December.
A Class-C felony carries a maximum penalty of five years imprisonment, a $10,000 fine or both.
