Chicago man arrested with 44 grams of heroin in Red Lake
RED LAKE-A Chicago man arrested Thursday with 44 grams of heroin and a Glock pistol told law enforcement he sells the drug only on the Red Lake Reservation. According to court documents, he already sold 30 grams before he was apprehended.
Clarence Jason Bibbs, 34, was taken into custody after he was found in possession of heroin at a Red Lake residence. Red Lake Tribal Police found Bibbs in a bathroom when serving a search warrant. Since Bibbs is not a Red Lake Band member, tribal police requested the Paul Bunyan Drug Task Force transport him to Beltrami County.
Task force agents picked Bibbs up at the reservation border and he was booked into the Beltrami County Jail on Thursday on one count of felony first-degree possession of heroin and ineligible person in possession of a firearm. According to court documents, Bibbs said he brought the gun for protection.
