Sheriff: Meth Bust is Largest Ever in Grant County

The meth has a street value of about $40,000.

CARSON, N.D.–A Carson man is in custody after Grant County authorities say they intercepted a package with 5 pounds of methamphetamine, an amount they say is the largest seizure in the county.

Sheriff John Foss says the meth has a street value of about $40,000.

Authorities say someone who received the package in error called sheriff’s officials earlier this week.

Deputies arrested 37-year-old Michael Eckis the next day. He’s charged with felony conspiracy to deliver methamphetamine and two misdemeanor drug charges.

Eckis is scheduled to make his initial court appearance on Thursday. Court documents do not list a defense attorney.
