St. Cloud Man Charged With Meth Crimes [VIDEO]
ST. CLOUD -- A St. Cloud man faces felony drug charges after a February traffic stop uncovered two pounds of methamphetamine in the car. Additional charges were added against 36-year-old Donald Schlichting after he allegedly had a car delivered to him from Arizona containing more than 10 pounds of meth about one month later.
A St. Cloud Police officer made the traffic stop February 25th at the intersection of 9th Avenue and 16th Street South for an obstructed license plate and tinted windows.
Court records show the officer noticed what appeared to be a large brick of methamphetamine on the front passenger seat. It later tested positive for meth and was packaged in two one-pound bricks taped together. A search of the vehicle also turned up a baggy containing meth and a baggy of marijuana.
Police arrested Schlichting and confiscated nearly $2,700 cash from him.
Authorities were notified March 28th that a New Mexico state trooper stopped a truck hauling a car containing meth and headed for Minnesota. Court records show the car was to be delivered to Schlichting in Clearwater.
The Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force sent an undercover officer to deliver the vehicle to Schlichting the following day. Schlichting and another man, 47-year-old Leland Siegel were arrested after picking up the car and accessing the hidden compartment where the drugs were stored.
