Dairy Queen worker at West Acres accused of dealing cocaine at mall

FARGO – A Dairy Queen employee at the West Acres mall here faces felony drug distribution charges after police allegedly found cocaine and drug-dealing paraphernalia in her purse following a report she had been dealing drugs there.

Alyssa Kathleen Weisbeck, 21, of Fargo was charged in Cass County District Court with one count of Class A felony possession of cocaine with intent to deliver, and one count of possession of hydrocodone, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, both Class C felonies.

According to a police report, Fargo police Officer Travis Moser was contacted by mall security about 7:27 p.m. Friday and told that an off-duty employee had seen a possible drug deal made by a worker at Dairy Queen in the mall.

Moser spoke with the employee, Weisbeck, and asked if she would be willing to talk in the hallway behind the restaurant. Weisbeck agreed.

When Moser told Weisbeck about the allegations, Weisbeck responded that she had not dealt any drugs that day, according to the report.

She agreed to let Moser search her purse, in which he allegedly found a baggie with cocaine, several empty baggies, a scale, a container full of pills, a baggie full of pills and $691 in cash.

Moser also allegedly found a pay-out sheet in Weisbeck’s purse, used to keep track of narcotics sales.

A store manager at the Dairy Queen declined to comment for this story.

West Acres property manager Chris Heaton said Weisbeck’s possession charge led to her being prohibited from being on mall property for two years, per policy.

“It’s not something that we want on our property,” he said. “We want it to be a family-friendly environment.”

Weisbeck’s bail was set at $500. Her next court appearance is set for May 21.
