ST. CLOUD (KNSI) - Drugs and guns were discovered, and several people are facing charges, after authorities executed a search warrant on a St. Cloud house.

The Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force and St. Cloud Police Department SWAT Team say the bust occurred Friday morning around 5 am.

Officials say the search was predicated on numerous calls to law enforcement realted to weapons, threats, gunshots, along with drug sales, in the area of 62 12th Avenue Northeast.

The owner of the home, 52 year-old David Roll, was home during the bust, along with 10 other people. No word on what types of charges he might be facing.

The search turned up a small amount of methamphetamine, an undisclosed amount of crack cocaine, prescription pills, and a 10 gauge saw-off shotgun.

Out of the 10 people in the home, three were arrested - 45 year old Bruce Canady and 27 year-old Macenzie Olson are both facing 5th degree possession of a controlled substance, and 27 year-old Joseph Berhardt was taken in on an existing warrant for felony drug possession.

All three were booked and released from Benton County Jail.

The investigation continues, and more charges are possible.
