White Earth man to appear in court on felony drug charges

A White Earth man will appear in Becker County District Court on April 1 on two felony drug charges.

George Edward Libby Jr., 34, of 26292 Eagle Road, White Earth, is accused of selling cocaine to a confidential informant of the West Central Minnesota Drug Task Force on four separate occasions from March 13-18, 2008. In each incident, the defendant allegedly sold a half gram of cocaine for $300 ($1,200 total). Also, a total of 18.6 grams of marijuana was found in the bedroom of his home when a search warrant was executed there on April 2, 2008.

Charges filed against Libby Feb. 10 in Becker County District Court include one felony count of second degree sale of a controlled substance (cocaine), and another felony count of fourth degree possession of a controlled substance (marijuana).

His first scheduled ap-pearance on March 11 was postponed until April 1 due to inclement weather. He is currently being held at a Lino Lakes detention facil-ity pending his next court date.
