Maddock mayor accused of participating in drug, theft ring
The mayor of Maddock, N.D., is accused of being part of a ring that raided abandoned farmsteads and conspired to manufacture methamphetamine, Benson County Sheriff Steven Rohrer announced Friday.
Mayor Kevin Winson, who was arrested last month, and six others face drug and theft charges in state District Court.
"All these people are friends," Rohrer said. "It's not really one group; it was, like, several different groups. They just happened to all be doing the same thing."
