Belcourt man convicted of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver in Ramsey County, North Dakota

Mar 2—RAMSEY COUNTY, ND — A Belcourt man was convicted Friday, March 1, of possession of methamphetamine, a Class A felony, with intent to deliver in Ramsey County.

In addition to the misdemeanor charge, Timothy Houle pleaded guilty to Class A misdemeanor charges under suspension.

Houle, 56, was sentenced to 20 years in the North Dakota Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, of which he initially served eight years. He has credit for 109 days served.

After his release, he will be on probation for five years. If he violates probation, he faces the possibility of serving the remaining 12 years in prison.

Houle was arrested in November

after he was found with numerous vacuum-sealed bags of what police said was methamphetamine, according to court documents.

The sealed bags weighed about 50 pounds, giving the contents a street value of at least $250,000, documents say.

At the time, Houle was driving while his license was suspended — a crime for which he has been convicted three times in the past five years, according to court documents.
