Larissa Monson, Minot, charged with intent to deliver amphetamines

Larissa Rose Monson, 33, Minot, is charged in district court in Minot with Class B felony intent to deliver amphetamines on Wednesday.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court, Monson was stopped for failing to yield and failing to use her turn signal at 1:11 a.m. Wednesday on University Avenue. The arresting officer noted a fruity smell coming from the vehicle but Monson denied that she was drinking and said she had borrowed the vehicle. Monson was asked to get out of the vehicle and another officer had a police dog do a sniff around the vehicle. The dog Mace alerted to the presence of drugs. Police searched the vehicle and found black lockbox inside a camouflage bag. Inside the lock box was 74 small, clear bags, a small bag with powder residue, and a bag filled with 1.6 grams of suspected amphetamines. The bag also had a scale with powder residue, eight insulin syringes, and a vaping device that smelled fruity.

Monson told police that her friends must have left the bag in the vehicle.

Monson is also facing charges in other open cases in district court in Minot.
