Synthetic Drug Charges
Four men have been charged with providing the chemicals that led to some synthetic drug overdoses and two deaths. Charles Carlton, John Polinski, Byron Landry and Ryan Lane are charged with conspiracy to distribute controlled substances that resulted in the deaths of Christian Bjerk, 18, of Grand Forks, and Elijah Stai, 17, of Park Rapids, Minnesota, in June.
Prosecutors say Carlton used the internet to import the chemicals into the country. Andrew Spofford of Grand Forks pleaded guilty to manufacturing the drugs.
