Separate suspects involved in separate meth busts will be appearing in district court soon, after Magistrate Judge Pat Casados ruled last week the cases should go to district court.
Known as “probable cause” hearings, the hearings are designed to determine if there’s probable cause enough to have their cases tried in district court. If no cause is found, the charges are dropped.
The suspects that were tried last week were Daniel Hoth, Rowena MacDonald and Alan Houle.
Casados also ruled that suspects Hoth and MacDonald will be tried together, as they were allegedly connected through an alleged drug dealer named Barry Simmons, from Albuquerque, who allegedly came to White Rock to do a meth deal. Hoth was allegedly the driver for the dealer and MacDonald allegedly aided Simmons by letting him stash the remainder of his drugs at her house at 76 Isleta Court.
While Hoth and Simmons were trying to find a buyer for some crystal meth last November, Simmons had some stored at MacDonald’s house.
