Minnesota Men Indicted for Meth, Fentanyl Trafficking Conspiracy
Duluth, MN (KROC-AM News)- A grand jury has indicted two Minnesota men on charges related to what authorities describe as a drug trafficking conspiracy.
U.S. Attorney for Minnesota Andrew Lugar announced the indictments Friday. The four indictments were the result of an investigation conducted by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, the Lake Superior Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, and the Duluth Police Department.
Court documents accuse 35-year-old Tisco Cooks and 25-year-old Cole Heyn of working together to distribute meth and fentanyl. Prosecutors say the Duluth men conducted the drug trafficking operation from the spring of 2020 through last July.
Both men are charged with one count of conspiracy to distribute fentanyl and one count of possession with the intent to distribute fentanyl. Cooks is also charged with a count of possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine and fentanyl while Heyn is facing an additional charge of one count of distribution of fentanyl.
Lugar says both men are in custody and awaiting to make their first court appearance. The first court date in the case has not yet been announced.
