A Duluth man has been arrested and charged with selling methamphetamine, according to authorities.

The Duluth Police Department executed a search warrant around 5:30 on the evening of Friday, January 3rd, at a residence on the 200 block of North 27th Avenue West. During the search they said they found 62 grams of methamphetamine, a digital scale, about $5,000 in cash, and baggies used to package drugs for sale.

Authorities said the renter, who is identified as 31-year-old James Derek Myers, admitted to selling the drug out of his residence. They said at the time of his arrest, he was already on probation in St. Louis County for a previous methamphetamine sale conviction, and felony domestic assault.

The Superior Police Department and the Lake Superior Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force assisted in executing the search warrant.
