A 25-year-old woman faces multiple felony drug charges in connection with a drug bust made by the North Dakota Highway Patrol last week.
En’chante Nicole Thurmon has been charged with several felony counts of drug possession with intent to deliver.
On Thursday, Thurman was driving a car that was stopped by a state trooper on Interstate 94 in Bismarck. A search of the vehicle was conducted after the trooper smelled marijuana. The search of the car and a subsequent search of the Bismarck home of Deandre Deamon Jones, 30, a passenger in the car, turned up methamphetamine, cocaine, tar heroin, MDMA tablets and Xanax pills with an estimated street value of nearly $75,000, according to the documents.
A 2-year-old child was riding in the back seat of the car in an unsecured car seat, court documents say. Both Thurmon and Jones have been charged with felony child neglect.
Law enforcement also found a loaded handgun in a child’s backpack during a search of the home, which was run through a national database and found to have been reported stolen out of Georgia. Thurmon and Jones also were charged with theft and possession of a firearm.
Officers found 276 grams of cocaine in the trunk of the car and more than 180 grams of methamphetamine in the home, according to an affidavit.
