Former Research Assistant Faces Meth Charge

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – A man who formerly worked as research assistant at the University of Minnesota is charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.

Two officers patrolling a St. Paul public storage building last week on a theft report found 30-year-old Matthew Lee Krause in a methamphetamine lab in a unit.

According to the university spokesman Chuck Tombarge, Krause attended there from fall 2010 to spring 2013. He was previously employed in the College of Biological Sciences as an undergraduate research assistant in plant biology. His employment ended last June.

The criminal complaint filed Tuesday in Ramsey County says among the evidence found was a set of master keys to the university.

Tombarge says university police are investigating.
