Those charges were the result of a search warrant executed in the 100 block of North Street in Bayard on August 1st. According to the sheriff’s office, deputies executed a second search warrant at the same location, and charged him with possession of methamphetamine – third offense, possession of a schedule II controlled substance, and failure to affix a drug tax stamp, all class D felonies.
