Following a traffic stop after midnight Monday, a cooperative driver reportedly claimed a raft of drugs allegedly found by police officers in his car.
Nicolaas Seybold, 20, of Aurora, Colo., faces two Class A felony counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, two misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance as well as one of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Court documents say a Morton County Sheriff's deputy stopped Seybold in Mandan after seeing his vehicle weaving and speeding. Seybold reportedly said he and his girlfriend were driving 10 hours from Denver to Mandan, and he appeared fatigued. The deputy called a K9 officer for possible drug smuggling.
Seybold and his girlfriend were allowed to leave on foot for their destination in town, the case's affidavit said, and they took two puppies with them. He did not give consent to search of his vehicle but a K9 sniff alerted positively for drugs, after which Seybold returned to his car. He reportedly cooperated with officers after telling them he had 2 pounds of marijuana in the car.
His bond was set Monday at $10,000 cash.
