• Wyatt L. Evers, 39, 1127 N. Broadway, New Ulm, was charged with felony 5th-degree drug possession-not small amount of marijuana Tuesday. According to court documents, New Ulm Police observed a black and silver 1999 Chevy Silverado leaving an east alley on the 1100 block of Washington Street South, traveling south towards 12th Street South at 3:41 p.m. Feb. 25. Police observed the vehicle’s passenger side brake light and taillight did not function and the vehicle appeared in very poor condition.
Police learned from a drug task force (DTF) agent that the male driver just left a known residence associated with narcotics and had a male passenger. The agent maintained visual until the vehicle entered the alley on the 1100 block of South Washington Street.
Evers would not associate himself with the area the DTF agent was doing surveillance at and denied being there. He said didn’t know of anything illegal in the vehicle and kept looking down toward the center console.
In the driver’s side door, police found a syringe without a needle or blood. Police retrieved the needle and observed a crystal-like substance consistent with methamphetamine in the top. At the Law Enforcement Center, the substance from the syringe field-tested positive for methamphetamine.
Evers was summoned to appear in court at 8:30 a.m. June 23.
