Contested omnibus hearing held in felony drug case

ALEXANDRIA — A contested omnibus hearing was held in a felony drug possession case on Friday, Feb. 3, in Douglas County District Court.
Kenneth Rosario, 53, of Starbuck, is charged with a felony fifth degree controlled substance crime — marijuana possession in excess of 42.5 grams.
In a contested omnibus hearing, the judge decides defense pretrial motions after a contested evidentiary hearing.
Rosario's charge stems from an incident on March 9, 2022, when Rosario was allegedly found to have a quart-sized tub full of fresh marijuana and a THC oil product, along with two vape smoking devices, both of which contained cannabis oil.
According to the statement of probable cause, the tub contained three large packages and four small baggies that were labeled as "Kush" and "GT." The marijuana collectively weighed 106.8 grams, inclusive of packaging.
The felony charge carries a maximum sentence of five years imprisonment and a $10,000 fine.
