A Detroit-area man is scheduled for trial next month to face charges from an August arrest in which Bismarck police said he and a co-defendant were in possession of 1,200 illegal pills and $5,000 cash.
Dennis Brown, 28, of Taylor, Mich., on Friday pleaded not guilty to drug and drug conspiracy charges.
Police conducting a traffic stop on Aug. 2 detected the odor of alcohol and marijuana, Police Sgt. Delmer Gallagher said during Brown’s preliminary hearing. Some of the oxycodone pills fell to the ground when Brown’s co-defendant, Zaire Goodman of Romulus, Mich., stepped out of the car. About 960 pills were found in a vitamin bottle in the glove box, and Brown had $4,500 cash in his pocket. More pills were found in her purse and around the front seat of the car, the sergeant said.
South Central District Judge Daniel Borgen scheduled a two-day trial for Brown starting Nov. 3. Defense attorney Kent Morrow did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Goodman’s trial is Dec. 30, court records show.
