Milad Zeidi faces three felony-level counts for possessing items that field-tested positive for methamphetamine.

WORTHINGTON — Milad Muftah Zeidi, 21, of Worthington, is scheduled to appear in Nobles County Fifth District Court next week on three felony-level fifth-degree drug offenses.

Zeidi was apprehended by the Worthington Police Department following a Nov. 1 traffic stop in which he was one of two passengers in a vehicle driven by a juvenile. Upon speaking with the individuals in the vehicle, the officer reportedly detected an odor of marijuana.

The driver said no one had smoked marijuana in the vehicle that he was aware of. Upon a search of the vehicle, the officer found the following items inside of duffel bags and a safe: Four glass pipes containing white residue; multiple dirty, small baggies; a baggie containing a white crystal-like substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine and weighed .3 grams); a baggie containing a black crystal-like substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine; a baggie containing a brown crystal-like substance that field-tested positive for meth; two cut straws with white residue that field-tested positive for meth; a dictionary safe containing six dirty baggies, glass pipes and a baggie with a black crystal-like substance.

Zeidi reportedly said all of the bags and safe belonged to him, and said he had relapsed. He has a prior fifth-degree controlled substance conviction on Oct. 25, 2021.

If convicted, Zeidi faces a maximum five years imprisonment and/or a $10,000 fine on each of the three counts he’s charged with.
