ABERDEEN (AP) - One of two owners of a mortuary business in Aberdeen where authorities found drugs while executing a search warrant has pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors.
The Aberdeen American News reports that the attorney for 53-year-old George Schriver on Tuesday entered guilty pleas on behalf of his client to the charges of drunken driving and ingestion of marijuana. Schriver then received a suspended jail sentence.
Schriver, and his brother, James, own Schriver's Memorial Mortuary and Crematory. Police say they found nearly 3 pounds of marijuana and some methamphetamine during an April 14 search of the business.
James Schriver pleaded guilty last month to possessing methamphetamine and marijuana in a plea deal with prosecutors that called for other charges to be dismissed. He is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 6.
