Moorhead man sentenced for drug bust where 18-month-old had meth in his system
MOORHEAD — A Moorhead man received a 12 1/2 year sentence Friday, May 1, in relation to a June arrest at his apartment where police found an 18-month-old with meth in his system.
Nathan Wayne Carr, 42, declined to say anything before Clay County District Judge Amber Gustafson handed down the 150-month sentence, two-thirds of which must be served in prison, for a first-degree aggravated controlled substance crime.
The felony charge amends a first-degree felony of selling drugs, while a second-degree felony for sale of drugs was dismissed.
Carr was arrested June 25 after officers found 290 grams of meth, 15 grams of cocaine and $1,584, according to police. The drugs had a street value of $30,500, police said.
Officers also found an 18-month-old boy at the apartment who was taken to a hospital to be treated for having meth in his system, police said.
Two other children were taken into custody but were unharmed, according to police.
