BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A man who was arrested on drug and weapons charges after a traffic stop in the North Dakota oil patch last summer has pleaded not guilty to two charges.

Buck Richard Hansbrough is charged in federal court with distribution of methamphetamine and possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. Trial is scheduled for April 4 in Bismarck.

Authorities say Hansbrough was pulled over in Williams County on June 18 for driving without lights on a trailer. He allegedly had four guns, including two semiautomatic weapons, and 40 rounds of ammunition in his vehicle.

Court documents show that Hansbrough has felony convictions in Washington state for burglary, theft, escape and unlawful possession and delivery of a controlled substance.

A federal public defender could not be reached for comment.
