An ex-Burleigh County Sheriff’s Deputy Kerry Komrosky pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to charges related to drugs which state investigators say were discovered in his home.
His charges include felony counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and theft of property, as well as misdemeanor counts of theft of property and possession of drug paraphernalia.
North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation agents testified at Komrosky’s preliminary hearing, portraying what they say were 2.9 pounds of meth and 47 grams of cocaine discovered in Komrosky’s home last month, all individually packaged, including one marked from the state crime lab. Other items included a scale and cell phones discovered at his residence.
Komrosky, 31, resigned last month from the Burleigh County Sheriff’s Department. He also had previously been assigned to the Metro Area Narcotics Task Force.
Attorneys consented to a three-day trial with dates to be resolved. Investigators continue to probe aspects of the case which includes an audit of Komrosky’s MANTF casework.
Earlier this month, the state Peace Officer Standards and Training Board suspended his peace officer’s license pending the result of his criminal case.
