Long Prairie Man Arrested After 11-Month Drug Investigation


LONG PRAIRIE – A Long Prairie man was arrested on Tuesday for selling methamphetamine after an 11-month drug investigation.

The Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension arrested 22-year-old Jorge Gonzalez-Escobar on multiple counts of first degree drug sales.

At the time of the arrest Gonzalez-Escobar was allegedly holding 56 grams (2 ounces) of meth.

The arrest is a culmination of an 11 month undercover investigation. During that time over 185 grams of meth was sold to an undercover agent.

In February, agents also arrested a Sauk Centre man as part of this investigation. Police say the man had 56 grams (10 ounces) of meth on him.

Both organizations worked closely with law enforcement agencies in the Twin Cities that lead to additional meth seizures and arrests. The arrests were related to suspected sources of meth supply for Central Minnesota.

Gonzalez-Escobar is being held at the Todd County Detention Center awaiting formal charges.
