A Montana man stopped late Wednesday on Interstate 94 by North Dakota Highway Patrol troopers for a traffic violation was found to be in possession of methamphetamine and pills, a patrol affidavit says.

Jeremy Moore, 29, of Fairview, Mont., was stopped just east of the Grant Marsh bridge at about 11:30 p.m. for crossing the yellow line and the white fog line. A search of the vehicle allegedly revealed a plastic bag that contained methamphetamine, and multiple clear plastic bags containing what was described in the affidavit as “hundreds of pills” of oxycodone. After he was arrested, jail staff confiscated drugs Moore had hidden in his clothes, the affidavit said.

Moore made his initial court appearance Thursday on charges of possession with intent to deliver opiates, a felony, misdemeanor possession of meth, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. He'll enter pleas later.

Moore is being held in the Burleigh Morton Detention Center in lieu of $10,000 cash bail. No attorney was listed for him in court documents.
