BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A former Burleigh County sheriff’s deputy has pleaded not guilty to charges that he stole evidence from drug cases.
Thirty-one-year-old Kerry Komrosky entered his plea Tuesday. The Bismarck Tribune reports attorneys agreed to a three-day trial, with dates to be determined.
Komrosky’s charges include possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, theft of property and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Agents from the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation testified at Komrosky’s preliminary hearing, describing what they say were 2.9 pounds (1,315 grams) of methamphetamine and 47 grams of cocaine found in Komrosky’s home last month.
