Two Bakersfield, Calif., residents were arrested and booked into the Southwest Multi-County Correction Center on charges related to narcotics possession with the intent to distribute.
At 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11, officers with the Dickinson Police Department conducted a routine traffic stop on a vehicle occupied by Cory Garrett and Sarah Kyle. During the stop it was discovered that Garrett had an active warrant for his arrest and was detained at the scene, according to a DPD press release.
Following Garret’s arrest, officers requested a K-9 unit perform a search of the vehicle, which led to a positive notification that narcotics were present. The Southwest Narcotics Task Force seized nearly 10 pounds of methamphetamine, two loaded handguns and a large amount of cash in the ensuing search.
Formal charges were filed by the Stark County State’s Attorney and include possession and conspiracy to possess methamphetamine with intent to deliver while in possession of a firearm. Kyle similarly faces charges of felon in possession of a firearm and false information to law enforcement.
Both individuals remain incarcerated at the SWMCCC, and the case remains under investigation at the time of reporting.
