Three men arrested in drug raid


Three men have been jailed following a drug raid Thursday on Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation. The bust yielded cocaine and crystal methamphetamine worth nearly $20,000, according to the Tri-Agency Task Force.

George Belcourt, 58, Randy Belcourt, 33, and John Striker Jr., 30, are being held without bond in the Hill County Detention Center. The three were arrested after members of the task force, FBI and Rocky Boy Police Department served a search warrant at the Belcourts' residence on the reservation, according to a press release from the task force.

During the search, more than 175 grams - about a third of a pound - of crystal meth and 20 grams of cocaine were seized, the press release said, adding that some of the drugs "were concealed in a child's bedroom."

The street value of the drugs is more than $19,000, the task force said.

The jail roster at the detention center said the Belcourts and Striker are being held without bond for the U.S. Marshals Service.

The press release from the task force said the three men are being held on federal drug warrants pending an initial appearance in U.S. District Court.

More arrests are expected, the press release said.
