SLAYTON — Another suspect has received criminal charges relating to an alleged Dec. 7 sale of methamphetamine within a city park zone.
A confidential informant (CI) with the Buffalo Ridge Drug Task Force (BRDTF) had arranged to purchase meth from Jill Erdman at her home. It was reported that after the CI gave Erdman the money, Erdman left the residence, saying she needed to meet with her supplier.
Shortly thereafter, a man showed up at the home looking for Erdman. This man has been identified as Nicholas Samson, 30, of Fulda. Samson allegedly left Erdman's home, picked her up and was in the driver's seat of the vehicle went Erdman allegedly handed off the meth to the CI at Gary's Service a couple hours later.
Samson has been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree drug sale, a felony offense which carries a maximum possible sentence of 25 years in prison and/or a $500,000 fine. If convicted, he will be sentenced based on criminal history.
Samson received a summons to appear in court, but was not booked into jail. For this reason, there is no mugshot of him. His initial court appearance is set for Monday morning.
