WILLMAR - A New London man pleaded not guilty Thursday to five felony drug charges in connection with a May search of his home.
Jeremy Shane Rudolph, 39, is charged with two counts of first-degree drug possession, two counts of first-degree drug sale and one count of fifth-degree drug possession.
Amber Dawn Gandrud, 33, who also lived in the home, is charged with one count each of first-degree drug possession, first-degree drug sale and fifth-degree drug possession. She pleaded not guilty to the charges a week ago.
Rudolph's next hearing in Kandiyohi County District court is scheduled for Sept. 13. A jury trial is scheduled for Sept. 21.
Gandrud's next court hearing is scheduled for Sept. 21. Her jury trial is scheduled for Sept. 26.
Both have been held in the Kandiyohi County Jail since May 15. Bail for Rudolph is set at $600,000 for unconditional release and $300,000 for conditional release. Gandrud's bail is $500,000 unconditional and $250,000 conditional.
According to the criminal complaint, a May 15 search of their home yielded drugs and paraphernalia.
Four separate baggies were found under the bathroom sink allegedly containing methamphetamine with a combined weight of 2.3 pounds and a value of about $30,000. Also found in the bathroom were more than 12 ounces of marijuana, a digital scale, unused baggies and meth paraphernalia.
Other items found in the apartment included a pay-owe sheet from Rudolph's wallet, two rifles and ammunition, marijuana and meth paraphernalia, surveillance cameras and equipment to detect listening devices.
