Two inmates charged with conspiring to deliver nearly 12 ounces of methamphetamine were denied a bond reduction on Wednesday.

Jessica Stockman, 29 and Crystal Allen, 32, were denied a reduction on their $50,000 bond by Southwest District Judge Rhonda Ehlis. Stockman and Allen, both of Watford City, are charged with Class AA felony conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance, methamphetamine.

Ehlis denied the request to reduce their bond to $10,000, citing the extent of the crime as enough to justify the hefty bond. That amount of meth has a street value of nearly $10,000, according to past statements by North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation agents.

Len Burrows, 49, and Sakima Lonato Victor, 40, are also being charged with the same crime in the case. However, they did not go before Ehlis on Wednesday.

The defendants were arrested June 15 in Stark County with 340 grams of methamphetamine that they allegedly manufactured, delivered or possessed with the intent to deliver, according to their criminal complaint.

Victor is also charged with a Class A misdemeanor for providing false information to law enforcement officer by giving a false name to agents of the Southwest Narcotics Task Force and the BCI.

Victor was charged in New Mexico with a second degree felony for trafficking methamphetamine by possession with intent to distribute on Aug. 31.

Last November, Victor was arrested for resisting, evading or obstructing an officer.
