ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) A five month investigation by the Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force has led to two men being arrested on drug charges.
On Tuesday, the task force executed a search warrant on a Dodge Minivan. A methamphetamine lab was located in the back of the van. Investigators found a 150 pound ammonia tank and chemicals used to make meth.
On Wednesday, investigators conducted separate search warrants that led them to more drugs.
The first search at 1214 7th Avenue North in St. Cloud turned up meth and materials used to make meth. Police arrested 46 year-old Scott Olson at that location.
A second search warrant at an apartment at 1215 East St. Germain uncovered another meth lab, including anhydrous ammonia that was stored in a used fire extinguisher. Sixty two year-old Derald Hausmann was arrested. He's facing charges in both Benton and Stearns counties.
