A man faces more-serious charges after allegedly admitting to continuing to sell heroin in Duluth while out on bail after being arrested on drug charges multiple times earlier this year.
An amended criminal complaint was filed Wednesday in State District Court in Duluth against Devon Maurice Bowser, 32, who now is charged with first-degree sale of drugs — 10 grams or more of heroin, and fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance.
If convicted on the most serious charge, he faces up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
According to the criminal complaint and reports from Duluth police:
On Sept. 19, investigators from the Lake Superior Drug and Violent Crime Task Force executed a search warrant on Bowser in the vicinity of Lake Avenue and Fifth Street. They found nine grams of heroin and seven pills containing the controlled substance MDMA.
Bowser was arrested, charged and later released on bail.
On Monday, task force investigators executed a search warrant at Bowser’s residence in the 100 block of East Third Street. Officers located a pair of jeans in a bedroom that allegedly had, among other items, Bowser’s identification card and 0.34 grams of a substance that field-tested positive for the presence of heroin.
In a hallway, inside a man’s shoe, officers found a bag containing 19 individually wrapped bags of a substance that also field-tested positive for the presence of heroin, according to police.
Bowser allegedly admitted to hiding heroin in one of his shoes in the apartment, and to continuing to sell heroin after his earlier arrest. He is being held at the St. Louis County Jail on $700,000 bail; he’s due back in court Jan. 4.
Bowser has previous convictions in St. Louis County dating back to 2006 on multiple drug-related charges, being a felon in possession of a weapon and disorderly conduct, among other counts.
