Almost 500 Pounds Of Cannabis Being Seized During a Traffic Stop

Stutsman County authorities say they seized 476 pounds of marijuana during a weekend traffic stop on Interstate 94 in southeastern North Dakota.

Stutsman County Sheriff Chad Kaiser said around 9 a.m. Sunday, a deputy observed a Toyota Tundra pickup truck with a topper traveling east on Interstate 94 near mile marker 266. Kaiser said the truck was traveling below the speed limit, and the deputy started following it. He said the deputy saw a faster vehicle pass the truck, and when the faster vehicle pulled back into the travel lane, the pickup truck did not slow down and was following the passing vehicle too close.

The driver Nhia Lee, 36, St. Paul, Minn., and the passenger Bee Thor, 37, Oshkosh, Wis. were arrested and made their initial appearance in Southeast District Court Monday, Jan. 22, in Jamestown.

They are charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, marijuana, a Class A felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, marijuana, a Class A misdemeanor. Lee and Thor are in custody in the Stutsman County Correctional Center. Each has had bail set at $200,000.
