WILLMAR -- Two 22-year-old men made their initial appearances Monday in District Court in Kandiyohi County, both facing first-degree drug charges.
Jesse Lee Weseman of Grove City and Jamie Allan Rohr of Olivia are both facing multiple felony charges, including a first-degree controlled substance crime for intent to sell, related to an incident earlier this month.
Both men are being held on unconditional bail of $300,000, with conditional bail at $200,000 for Rohr and $200,000 cash or $20,000 bond for Weseman.
Formal charges were filed against the men after an Oct. 11 traffic stop by a Kandiyohi County sheriff's deputy.
According to the complaint, Rohr was driving the vehicle and was caught speeding and driving on a revoked license. While Rohr was being arrested by the deputy for driving after revocation, the deputy allegedly found a pipe in his pocket containing a white residue. Rohr allegedly claimed he didn't know how it had gotten into his pocket. The deputy also noted that Rohr's pupils appeared dilated, and he requested aid from another deputy and a Minnesota State Patrol trooper with a K9 unit.
Weseman allegedly gave the deputy the name of Devon Boyd Weseman when he was initially questioned. Authorities later found that Weseman had two outstanding warrants in McLeod and Renville counties.
Because of Rohr's driving status, the car was impounded. During a search of the vehicle, authorities found a backpack containing identification belonging to Weseman as well as a plastic bag containing 1.1 grams of methamphetamine.
Two more backpacks that were tied together were allegedly found in the trunk. A digital scale, numerous plastic bags, a meth water bong and four plastic bags containing a total of 22.7 grams of meth were found in the backpacks in the trunk. Authorities also recovered 500,000- and 100,000-volt stun guns in the vehicle and a notebook containing names and pricing information.
Weseman is facing felony charges of first-degree controlled substance crime -- intent to sell and fifth-degree controlled substance crime. He is also charged with a misdemeanor for giving a peace officer a false name along with a petty misdemeanor charge for possession of drug paraphernalia.
Rohr is facing felony charges of first-degree controlled substance crime -- intent to sell and second-degree driving while impaired. He is also charged with a misdemeanor count of driving after revocation along with two petty misdemeanors for speeding and being in possession of drug paraphernalia.
Weseman is scheduled to be in court again Nov. 21. Rohr is scheduled to be in court again Nov. 14.
