One Arrested In Drug Investigation
ST. CLOUD — A 15-month investigation into a methamphetamine distribution ring has led to at least one arrest in the case. Police say the drug trafficking covered several parts of Central Minnesota.
The Central Minnesota Drug & Gang Task Force most recently arrested a 42-year-old Bell, California man as he left a home in Wadena. Rosendo Navarro was arrested Friday.
Search warrants have been served in several counties as part of the investigation. All told, police confiscated 2.6-pounds of methamphetamine, 14 guns, over $150,000 in cash and a vehicle.
Officers say they also found 306 grams of meth and more than $50,000 hidden in Navarro’s vehicle.
The investigation has now expanded into several other states and more arrests are expected.
