ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) — Sentencing has been scheduled March 7 for an Aberdeen businessman who recently admitted to keeping methamphetamine in the basement of his downtown pawn shop.
The American News reports that 51-year-old Silas Wilson pleaded guilty last week to possessing meth and ingesting the drug.
The charge stems from a police raid of Aberdeen Pawn in which authorities say they found meth worth nearly $33,000 on the streets.
The business has since changed its name to Aberdeen Retail.
