A Thief River Falls man was allegedly stopped by police with over 2 ounces of methamphetamine in his car.
Jaden Allen Larson, 24, could spend up to 10 years behind bars if convicted of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. He’s also facing felony charges of possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana and paraphernalia.
Officers knew Larson had an expired drivers license and was near the Target parking lot Sunday, according to an affidavit for his arrest. Larson opened his car door when police stopped him near 3301 32nd Ave. S. around 10 p.m., the court document said.
Police reported that marijuana and methamphetamine pipes were clearly visible in the door, and Larson was arrested.
While searching his car, police said they found 6.6 grams of marijuana, 57.3 grams of methamphetamine, bags with residue, a scale, needles, cash and six hydrocodone pills.
Larson is scheduled to enter a plea July 15.
