Man Accused Of Distributing Methamphetamine In Texas

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Fargo man is charged of dealing methamphetamine in North Dakota, Minnesota, Texas and elsewhere.

William Russ is charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute at least 500 grams of meth. A preliminary hearing has not been scheduled.

A federal affidavit says Russ was arrested after he was found sleeping in a vehicle outside a Fargo motel. A search found more than 118 grams of meth, about 42 grams of marijuana, more than 70 prescription painkillers and $16,000 in cash.

A lawyer for Russ was not available for comment.
