Three individuals were arrested in two drug busts last week.
The Northwest Narcotics Task Force executed search warrants at two different Williston residences on Wednesday, making arrests for several drug charges, according to press releases. The task force was also assisted by the Williams County Sheriff’s Office, Williston Police Department and North Dakota Parole and Probation.
The first arrests came after officers searched a residence on 6th Street West. Kayla Lynae Weyrauch was arrested on charges of unlawful possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, unlawful possession of methamphetamine, unlawful possession of psilocin, unlawful possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of methamphetamine paraphernalia.
Additional charges are expected, the release said.
The second arrest stemming from the same search warrant was of 30-year-old Jeremy Scott Weyrauch, who was arrested for unlawful possession of methamphetamine paraphernalia and ingestion of a controlled substance.
The second bust came at a 9th Avenue East residence the same day, according to a release.
Jayson Powell Drury, 58, was arrested on charges of felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver (methamphetamine), possession of drug paraphernalia (methamphetamine) and owning/operating a dwelling in which drugs are sold.
More arrests are expected, the release said.
Detective David Peterson said he could not confirm how long the investigations were ongoing, but said the individuals have lived in Williston since at least 2008.
