Police say a 34-year-old man had drugs, packaging material and a handgun when he was arrested during a traffic stop on Tuesday, July 16.
Alex Crazybull was charged Thursday with possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, both class B felonies, as well as two class C felony counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also charged with carrying a concealed weapon, possession of an illegally modified handgun and making false reports to law enforcement, all class A misdemeanors.
Police encountered Crazybull during a traffic stop, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed in Northwest District Court. When police approached the car, they saw him in the backseat trying to hide things under this seat.
Police saw a syringe on the floor of the car that Crazybull said contained methamphetamine, court records state. After that they searched the car and found multiple bags with small amounts of marijuana, a bag with a small amount of meth, about $100 in cash, a digital scale with methamphetamine residue on it and stash of unused bags that were the same size and had the same design as the ones that had drugs in them.
Under the rear passenger seat, police found a Ruger 9mm pistol with an obscured serial number, charging documents indicate. Police also found about $336 in cash, two more bags with a total of about 7.5 grams of meth and more unused bags matching the others.
Officer said Crazybull gave them a fake name and that he had a warrant out for his arrest that accused him of violating his probation in a 2017 drug case.
Also arrested during the traffic stop were Wethorlee Lindsay, who was charged with class A misdemeanor counts of giving false information to law enforcement and possession of drug paraphernalia and Jory Demarrias, who was charged with a class A misdemeanor count of giving false information to law enforcement.
The pair are scheduled to have initial appearances in Northwest District Court on Aug. 12, and Crazybull is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing on Aug. 14.
