KILLDEER -- Three people were arrested Friday for various crimes after the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office, in conjunction with various other law enforcement agencies, raided three locations near Killdeer and recovered evidence related to multiple crimes.

Items recovered included an improvised explosive device, narcotics, weapons and an illegally possessed venomous reptile during a series of search warrants, according to a statement by Dunn County Sheriff Clay Coker.

The searches took place at one location just west of Killdeer and two locations east of Killdeer.

Livestock bearing illegal and/or altered brands were also located in the searches.

The Southwest Tactical Team, the Badlands Narcotics Task Force, the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigations and the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association also responded, along with the sheriff’s office.

The reptile necessitated the involvement of North Dakota Game and Fish, and the Bismarck Police Department Bomb Squad was requested for assistance with the IED.

The sheriff’s office did not release the identities of those arrested, and has yet to respond to phone calls and emails.

Coker said in his statement that further investigations are ongoing.
