Man pleads not guilty to possessing 12 pounds of marijuana

JAMESTOWN, N.D. — A Rogers man has pleaded not guilty to possessing 12 pounds of marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school in Jamestown.

Fifty-one-year-old Charles Kettle allegedly brought the drugs from California. He faces a felony charge that carries a maximum punishment upon conviction of 20 years in prison.

The Jamestown Sun reports that Kettle was arrested on March 5 and appeared in court this week.

Police Chief Scott Edinger says the bust is one of the biggest in recent history in the city.
