DRUG CHARGES -- Drug arrests in Sherburne County. 47-year-old Frank Cairl and 19-year-old Timothy Cairl of Becker -- arrested. Police found fentanyl, marijuana, hallucinogenic mushrooms and marijuana wax. AND authorities are looking at possible links between the two and two drug overdoses.
SEX TRAFFICKING -- Charges of sex trafficking of a vulnerable adult woman and promoting prostitution for 31-year-old John Rasmussen of St. Cloud. Court documents allege it happened in April, but Rasmussen couldn't be located until last week.
DAYCARE OWNER CHARGES -- St. Cloud daycare center owner Abdi Ali Mohamud of Minneapolis faces felony charges of theft-by-swindle and wrongfully obtaining assistance. Accused of falsely reporting the number of kids attending the daycare center.
HOME BURGLARIES -- Police say an Onamia man admitted to being involved in two home burglaries in Morrison County in June. Spotted by a resident who was watching one of the homes for a neighbor. Charges pending.
EAST ST. CLOUD DEMOLITION -- Looks like a Kwik Trip convenience store may go onto the old Holiday gas station and Ace Bar block of East St. Germain Street. But that still requires the Dutch Maid Bakery to find a new location, and for a developer to get some local or state assistance to buy the bakery location. Demolition continues on that block, prepping the area for whatever project is finally decided on.
HOSPITAL ROAD ALIGNMENT -- Demolition's expected to begin later this month near St. Cloud Hospital where CentraCare Health is paying the three-quarters-of-a-million dollar cost for a realignment project for 13th Street North. They'll be tearing down some homes and resituating the road to provide direct access to the emergency room.
COBORN'S RECALL -- Coborn's is recalling packages of its Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Bars sold at Coborns and Cashwise stores in the midwest. The bars don't indicate the product has milk in it.
MILLE LACS PROTEST -- When Governor Mark Dayton hits the water for bass fishing on Lake Mille Lacs Saturday, he'll be greeted by protesters. They're angry walleye fishing -- even catch and release -- is prohibited on the big lake for the next three weeks.
