3lbs. Of Meth Seized After A Beltrami County Drug Bust
A Bemidji couple and two men now face first-degree drug charges after three pounds of meth was seized.
According to court documents, on Monday a confidential informant along with two men, Rolando Velasquez of Iowa and Herman Velasquez, of Texas, went to Christopher and Rebecca Trisco’s home, where the informant was able to purchase more than a pound of methamphetamine.
Shortly after, law enforcement arrested both Rolando and Herman Velasquez and searched the Triscos’ home where they found more than three pounds of meth.
According to Christopher Trisco’s criminal complaint, he told authorities that he purchased approximately three pounds of meth from the Velasquezes and that his wife Rebecca sells it for him.
Both Velasquezes said that this was not their first time to the Triscos’ home, and that they have dropped off meth and picked up money from the home before.
The Triscos and the Velasquezes all appeared in Beltrami County Court on Thursday.
As of Friday afternoon their next court appearance has not been scheduled.
