A Sanborn man is behind bars on felony drug charges after he was arrested Monday (11/5). 20-year-old Adam Bradley Bonnema Tebben of Sanborn was arrested on a warrant for two counts of Prohibited Acts- Delivery of a Controlled Substance – Vyvanse (Lisdexamfetamine). The counts are both class C felonies, and he faces up to 10 years in prison and a $50,000 fine on each count.
According to online resources, Vyvance is usually prescribed to treat ADHD, but it is abused for a “high”.
Authorities say The charges stem from an ongoing narcotics investigation in which Tebben allegedly sold and delivered Vyvanse prescription pills to an individual on two different dates. The first incident occurred on September 18, 2011 and the second occurred on March 28, 2012. Both incidents happened within the Sanborn city limits.
Following Tebben’s arrest he was booked into the O’Brien County Jail. Tebben will make an initial appearance before O’Brien County Magistrate Jeff Queck and then will be scheduled to appear in O’Brien County District Court at a later date to answer to the charges.
