Today is the sixth day of trial and fifth of testimony. The prosecution rested yesterday, and the defense has called two witnesses so far: John Unruh and his daughter.
Jury and judge just came in.
Miller is an investigator with Mandan police, currently assigned to the Metro Area Narcotics Task Force.
He met Albaugh during a controlled buy in which Albaugh sold him drugs. Miller was undercover.
Albaugh faced charges for that in Burleigh and Morton counties.
Albaugh agreed to sell him half a pound of marijuana. He also told Miller he used 2.5 grams of meth per day. Miller said that's a pretty significant amount.
Pros cross examines. Miller never saw Albaugh use meth and found no evidence of meth use during searches.
Def offers court documents related to charges against Albaugh.
Pros does not object to entry of the documents.
