ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) The Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force says a five month investigation has led to the arrest of at least 15 people in the St. Cloud area on drug charges.
The task force began the operation in May with the purchase of crack cocaine from several people living in St. Cloud.

Three-and-a-half grams of crack cocaine and approximately $1,600 were seized.
The condition of the house caused investigators to contact the city of St. Cloud to have the house posted as condemned.
Those arrested are identified as 51 year-old Bridget Wilson of St. Cloud, 52 year-old Lamont Wilson, who's currently in the Stillwater State Prison, 23 year-old Henry Lee Moore of Minneapolis, 35 year-old Michael Brown of St. Cloud, 41 year-old Guice Harbor of St. Cloud, 27 year-old Anthony Reese, who is an inmate in the Benton County Jail, 38 year-old Kenosha Bates of St. Cloud, 44 year-old Antoine Jones of St. Cloud, 34 year-old Eddie Brown Junior of St. Cloud, 47 year-old Sharon Norwood of St. Cloud, 37 year-old Jermaine Maxwell of St. Cloud, 43 year-old Ladonna McClure of St. Cloud, 24 year-old Katie Rockymore of St. Cloud, 36 year-old Marshall Pack of St. Cloud and 37 year-old Carla Thomas of St. Cloud.
