ALBERT LEA-- A second suspect has been arrested after two children were taken at gunpoint from an Albert Lea home in a custody dispute.
The 35-year-old Rochester man was jailed Friday night on felony drug charges in Olmsted County. He is expected to face charges for the home invasion that happened around 9 p.m. Thursday.
