WORTHINGTON — Two individuals with active arrest warrants face additional charges following a Nov. 30 Buffalo Ridge Drug Task Force search that resulted in the alleged discovery of methamphetamine and Diazepam.

According to the criminal complaint, BRDTF agents arrested Rudy Ramirez, 25, of Worthington and Mary Haberman, 20, of Brewster, after methamphetamine, 26 Diazepam pills, drug paraphernalia and a digital scale were allegedly discovered in a garage in which they’d been staying.

According to the complaint, BRDTF saw Ramirez — who had an active warrant — at a residency in Worthington. During a search of his person, agents found car keys, which he said belonged to Haberman. During the time of his arrest, he received a call from “Mary” — who agents believed to be Haberman — who also had a warrant.

Haberman was found in a garage at the residence. Agents discovered a digital scale with a white residue, as well as numerous items for packaging controlled substances and drug paraphernalia.

The agents detailed that the garage was partitioned into smaller areas with tarps, and a bed with clothing on top was situated in the middle. A mirror with syringes — one loaded with an unidentified substance — were also allegedly discovered.

Ramirez, who has two prior controlled substance convictions, has been charged with two counts of felony fifth-degree drug possession and petty misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. The felony-level offenses are punishable up to five years imprisonment, a $10,000 fine or both. His bail has been set at $3,000 with conditions or $15,000 without.

Haberman faces two counts of gross misdemeanor fifth-degree controlled substance possession and petty misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. Her bail has been set at $1,500 with conditions or $6,000 without.
