David Sean Lucero is facing the charge of criminal possession of dangerous drugs, fentanyl. His initial appearance is scheduled for Oct. 24. Bail has been set for $25,000.
Maximum penalties are five years in jail, a $5,000 fine or both.
According to court documents, the Montana Highway Patrol was contacted by a Fort Peck Tribes narcotics officer on Aug. 2 regarding a vehicle allegedly to be transporting narcotics from Pueblo, Colo., to Poplar. The vehicle was observed to have smoke coming from its tail pipe and following too closely to the vehicle in front of it. A traffic stop was made.
Lucero was one of four passengers in the vehicle. When a deputy was questioning the vehicle’s driver, occupants were approached by the Montana Highway Patrol and tribal narcotics officer.
It was discovered that Lucero had two “tooters” with visible burnt residue. Lucero was later questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Bureau of Indian Affairs officers and tribal narcotics.
The Montana Department of Justice forensics science division tested the tooters positive for fentanyl.
