GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Two sisters from Minnesota are accused of dealing large quantities of methamphetamine in North Dakota.
Twenty-two-year-old Jacqueline Weiss and 25-year-old Jennifer Weiss of Zimmerman, Minnesota are charged in federal court with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than 500 grams of meth.
Authorities say the sisters were arrested on December 13th after travelling to Grand Forks to make a drug deal. Police found 420 grams of meth in 15 baggies that were hidden in an electric heater the women brought into a hotel.
Court documents show that a police informant had arranged to buy 11 ounces of meth from the suspects worth about $12,000.
A spokesman from the federal public defender's office could not be reached for comment.
