BISMARCK – A federal jury has found an Arizona man guilty of drug charges stemming from what was believed to be the largest meth seizure in North Dakota history.
Rocky Thomas Mayfield, 31, was found guilty of three charges related to distributing methamphetamine following a three-day trial in U.S. District Court.
Mayfield also was found guilty of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
In early 2015, Mayfield and his associates arranged for the delivery of methamphetamine from Arizona to the Williston area, prosecutors said.
On Feb. 11, 2015, law enforcement conducted a traffic stop near Berthold, where they discovered about a pound of meth in a car Mayfield had rented.
After executing a search warrant at a Minot hotel, investigators found another 10 pounds of meth, which had a street value of up to $200,000 to $350,000.
A sentencing hearing has yet to be scheduled.
