Pounds of Meth Seized in Major Drug Bust at Minnesota Post Office
A news release issued by the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office says the bust happened Monday afternoon at the Hibbing Post Office.
Agents from the Lake Superior Violent Offender Task Force, Minnesota BCA and U.S. Postal Inspectors Office took part in the massive drug seizure as part of a narcotics investigation.
Officials say a K-9 detected the presence of narcotics after sniffing a suspicious package. The agents then obtained a search warrant for the package and that led to the discovery of five pounds of methamphetamine.
Two people were taken into custody following the massive meth seizure. Their identities have not been released.
