An Ardoch, N.D., man was arrested Sunday on various charges after a

report of a suspicious person in Grand Forks County.

The Grand Forks County Sheriff's Department responded to a rural

Fordville, N.D., address early Sunday on a report of an unwanted and

suspicious person in the area, the sheriff's department said in a

press release today. Deputies talked to Scott Lamont, 49, of Ardoch,

N.D., who indicated someone had been chasing him and he ran out of

gas. Deputies determined Lamont was under the influence of a

controlled substance and arrested him. Deputies seized a large amount

of cash, methamphetamines, marijuana, numerous drug paraphernalia

items and a concealed weapon, the release said. Lamont was arrested

for possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, several

possession charges, carrying a concealed weapon, ingesting a

controlled substance and no liability insurance. Lamont was

transferred to the Grand Forks County Correctional Center, officials

said.
