Michigan Drug Dealer Caught In ND Sentenced to Decade Behind Bars

(Bismarch, ND) -- A Michigan drug dealer is set to spend a decade in federal prison after being sentenced this week on drug and gun charges.  

Jorge Pitts' charges are related to a January 2018 incident in New Town, Northwest of Bismarck, where drug dogs detected more than 16-hundred oxycodone pills in a vehicle and a firearm he wasn't legally allowed to have.  

Officials say the drugs had a street value of 130-thousand dollars.
