The criminal complaint filed Monday in Olmsted County Court says members of the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office and members of the  Southeast Minnesota Violent Crime Enforcement Team executed a search warrant at the Days Inn Hotel at 3595 Commercial Dr. Southwest. The raid happened on June 30.

The charges say law enforcement knocked on the door and 47-year-old Jason David Hameister answered it after a brief period of time. He was detained and the search began.

The charges say authorities found approximately 164.3 grams of suspected methamphetamine, a working digital scale, two cell phones, and $636.00 in cash. There was also a woman lying in the bed of the hotel room identified as 37-year-old Jessica Ann Rudolph.

Hameister initially told officers the items found in the room were all his but eventually admitted to a law enforcement claim that Rudolph was also involved in drug sale activity, according to court documents.

Hameister and Rudolph were each charged with a count of first-degree drug sales and first-degree drug possession. They each made their first court appearances on Monday. 

Hameister’s bail was set at $200,000 without conditions and the judge set Rudolph’s conditional bail at $20,000. Rudolph posted her non-cash bond on Wednesday while Hameister remains in custody at the Olmsted County Adult Detention Center.

It’s the third time this year Hameister has been charged with first-degree drug sales in Olmsted County. The criminal complaint in that case, which also charges him with second-degree drug possession, accuses him of selling 29 grams of meth to a Rochester Police informant in March of 2022. That case is pending and has a hearing scheduled for November. 

He and  Rudolph were each charged with first-degree drug sales in February after law enforcement allegedly found large amounts of meth, fentanyl pills, prescription pills and marijuana during a February 7 search of their Rochester residence that was prompted by a phone conversation between Hameister and Rudolph when Hameister was in jail. That case is also still pending.
