Three Aberdeen residents busted for drugs near Brookings

Three people are arrested by the Brookings County Sheriff’s Department after allegedly doing drugs in the parking lot of an SDSU facility.

Assistant Sheriff Scott Sebring says they were notified at about Noon Wednesday that there were three people in a vehicle who appeared to be snorting an unknown substance. They were in the lot of the former SDSU Insect Lab just north of Brookings.

A deputy stopped the vehicle leaving the parking lot.

Narcotics believed to be methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, suspected stolen electronics, suspected stolen credit cards, and burglary tools were located in the vehicle.

Arrested were two 28-year-old men from Aberdeen, Duran James American Horse and Anthony Alden. They were charged with possession of a controlled substance, ingesting a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, grand theft, and possession of burglary tools.

Twenty-one-year-old Hannah Marie Malsom, also of Aberdeen, was arrested and faces the same charges as well as a traffic citation.

American Horse and Alden are on parole out of Brown County and are being held at the Brookings County Jail on a parole hold. Malsom is being held on a $1,000 bond.
