Stanley Miller, Minot, charged with intent to deliver methamphetamine
Stanley Leon Miller, 43, Minot, is charged with possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, a Class B felony; possession of heroin, a second offense, a Class C felony, possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class C felony, and resisting arrest, a Class C felony, in district court in Minot.
According to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court, the Ward County Narcotics Task Force was conducting surveillance on Monday at the Select Inn, located at 225 22nd Avenue NW, in Minot because of suspected drug activity or drug sales there. They saw Miller making contact with two vehicles for short periods of time at open driver’s windows and then go back into the hotel building. Miller had an open warrant. The officers went into the Select Inn and made contact with Miller in the lobby. Miller’s eyes widened and he ran toward the front door when one of the officers said he needed to speak to him. The officer yelled “Stop! Police!” and caught Miller and pushed him to the ground. Miller struggled while the officers were trying to handcuff him. During the struggle, Miller dropped a tin foil ball containing suspected “china white” heroin. Miller also had a bag of methamphetamine in his jeans pocket and another tin foil ball containing burned heroin residue. Miller had approximately one half gram of heroin and 6.42 grams of methamphetamine.
Miller was scheduled to make an initial appearance on the charges on Tuesday in district court before Judge Gary Lee.
