Five of the six people arrested in connection to a major methamphetamine operation in Fremont county appeared in court Wednesday afternoon. Timothy Pitt, the alleged ringleader of the organization, waived his preliminary hearing and will have his case transferred directly to district court.
Law enforcement used several techniques including unidentified informants, agent surveillance, and wire tapping to gather evidence against Pitt.
Attorneys representing the defendants argued that recorded conversations between Pitt and the others where too broad and that all but one of the clients did not have methamphetamine on them when they where arrested. They also say no drugs were found when their client's homes were searched.
All six are charged with one count each of conspiracy to deliver methamphetamine. The felony is punishable by 20 years imprisonment and/or a fine of $25,000.
