2 charged with meth trafficking in Grand Forks County

GRAND FORKS - Grand Forks County sheriff's deputies are accusing two Minnesotans with drug trafficking following a traffic stop on Interstate 29, the sheriff's department said Monday.

Scott A. Kopecky, 50, and Toniah J. Lorge, 34, were stopped early Friday morning because of a burnt out headlight.

Both are charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana. Kopecky was also charged with lying to law enforcement officers. Lorge was also charged with driving under suspension.

Delivering meth is the most serious of the charges with a maximum prison sentence of 20 years.

Kopecky and Lorge are scheduled for a preliminary hearing March 3 in state district court in Grand Forks.
