St. Cloud Businessman Arrested on Drug Sale Charges, Criminal Sexual Conduct
ST. CLOUD -- A St. Cloud business owner has been arrested on several charges stemming from an undercover drug investigation.
Members of the Central Minnesota Violent Offenders Task Force used a search warrant Monday at the IPOD Guy Store at 900 West St. Germain Street in St. Cloud.
The search was based on two undercover drug buys at the store where owner, 44-year-old Andrew Frederick allegedly sold undercover officers prescription drugs.
Police seized Oxycontin and Percocet pills at the store Monday and arrested Frederick.
A 17-year-old girl and an 18-month-old child were also at the store. The girl told police she was Frederick's girlfriend and the child was hers. Police used a DNA test to determine the child was Frederick's and that the child was conceived when the girl was 15-years-old.
Frederick faces several drug charges and also a criminal sexual conduct charge and child endangerment charge.
Police also seized a .40-caliber handgun in the raid.
