Cloquet Man Arrested In January Drug Death
CLOQUET (AP) - Authorities have arrested a Cloquet man suspected in a man's drug-related death in January.
The 51-year-old man was arrested on a warrant Thursday and is in jail awaiting a court appearance.
Authorities allege the suspect supplied a fentanyl patch to a man who later died.
Twenty-five-year-old Paul Duane Mrosla was found unconscious at a Carlton home on Jan. 15.
Attempts to revive Mrosla were unsuccessful and he died at the scene.
Carlton County Sheriff Kelly Lake says an investigation found that Mrosla had died from an overdose of fentanyl.
Fentanyl is a synthetic form of morphine prescribed to cancer patients.
