Acting United States Attorney Dennis Holmes announced that a Milbank, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance.

Delvin Eagle Chasing, a/k/a Delvin Baumgarten, age 35, was indicted on May 11, 2021.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on June 25, 2021, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to life in prison and/or a $1,000,000 fine, three years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund for each Count.  Restitution may also be ordered. 

The Indictment alleges that on January 12, 2021, in Eagle Butte, South Dakota, Eagle Chasing did knowingly and intentionally possess with intent to distribute a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine.

The charge is merely an accusation and Eagle Chasing is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services and the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges is prosecuting the case.
