Chad Borghi, Minot, to serve 18 months for intent to deliver heroin, meth

Chad Dana Borghi, 38, Minot, was sentenced on Wednesday to three years in prison, with a requirement that he serve 18 months, and three years of supervised probation for two Class B felonies, intent to deliver heroin and intent to deliver methamphetamine. The sentences are the same for each of the Class B felonies and are concurrent with each other.

Borghi was charged after the Ward County Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant on his rented room at the Guest Lodge in Minot last June.

The search turned up 52 grams of suspected methamphetamine, two grams of suspected heroin, and numerous bags of buprenorphine and naloxone strips and the digital scale.

Borghi was also in possession of $452, seized as suspected proceeds of drug deals, and a handgun that was in the same area as the narcotics in June at the Guest Lodge in Minot.

The state dropped other charges, including intent to deliver buprenorphine and naloxone, Class B felonies, and possession of a digital scale, a Class C felony, against Borghi under the terms of a plea deal.

Judge Todd Cresap also ordered Borghi to pay court costs and fees and to forfeit the cash and weapon seized. Borghi must also obtain a chemical dependency evaluation.
