A Bemidji man is facing charges after a traffic stop last week led to the discovery of over a kilogram of marijuana.
The criminal complaint says 22-year-old Dayon Lussier’s apartment on Beltrami Ave. NW was subject to a search warrant on Dec. 30, in which officers found a number of .40 caliber bullets in a clear tote.
The traffic stop on Jan. 10 was initiated after an officer observed illegal window tint.
A subsequent search of the vehicle found three bags of marijuana, which weighed over 1,000 grams with the packaging.
A kilogram is roughly equivalent to 2.2 pounds.
Lussier’s criminal history includes convictions for first-degree burglary, aiding and abetting the theft of a motor vehicle, and first-degree aggravated robbery.
Lussier will make his next court appearance on Jan. 23. At his last court hearing, unconditional bail was set at $75,000.
