May trial set in case of pot shipped through mail


A Bismarck man who police say received marijuana shipments through the mail and wired money to California for payment will go to trial in May.

Deondre Anderson, 29, pleaded not guilty Monday to three felony drug charges. Police in October executed a search warrant at his home during which they found 221 grams of marijuana and 35 grams of methamphetamine, according to authorities. Officers also executed search warrants on two packages shipped from California to Anderson’s home-based business, Family Life Home Care, and found 3 pounds of marijuana, according to an affidavit.

The packages were addressed to Anderson, police found marijuana in his home, and they found evidence that Anderson electronically tracked the shipping progress of the packages from his home, Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Jeff Buckles testified.

Anderson’s attorney, Chad McCabe, said after the hearing that the case is “an unfortunate situation.”

“At this point we’re just trying to work through state’s evidence and review the case,” he said.

South Central District Judge Bruce Romanick set a trial date of May 14.
