Kerry Williams, 31, Detroit, Michigan., is charged in district court in Ward County with Class B felony possession with intent to deliver fentanyl, Class B felony possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, Class C felony possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana, an infraction on Aug. 4. His co-defendant, Davontae Leregginald Alexander, 23, Detroit, is charged with Class B felony possession with intent to deliver fentanyl.
The pair were charged after Williams was stopped for speeding near Minot by a North Dakota Highway Patrol trooper, according to court documents. Trooper Daniel Johnson wrote that there was a backpack behind the driver’s seat that contained a large number of suspected fentanyl pills and more suspected fentanyl pills inside a shoe on the passenger side floorboard. A bag and several smaller plastic bags contained suspected methamphetamine. Also found was a digital scale. Williams was also carrying a large amount of cash. Williams has prior drug-related convictions, according to the affidavit.
According to Michigan prison records, Alexander is on parole for unarmed robbery in Wayne County, Michigan, following a 2018 conviction. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison in 2018 in Michigan for that offense and was paroled in August 2021.
A preliminary hearing in the North Dakota case is scheduled for Sept. 7 before Judge Richard Hagar.
