5 posts in this topic

I heard through the grape vine that there was a drug bust out on the lake in the past week or so, and that a big icecastle house and a couple trucks were confiscated, anyone else hear about this? or have any specific details?

If true that pretty sad, probably cooking meth or something dumb like that.

Sadly enough, this has gone on for years. Back in the mid-80's we (Sheriff's Dept.) cracked down on "party houses" on the metro lakes, including an operation on one of the major bodies in the area that netted 36 arrests in one evening. It involved several metro departments in order to monitor all the known entrances and egresses from the lake, our narc unit (with a van on the ice) and a bevy of patrol sleds. Even the Civil Air Patrol had some wings in the sky, since the drug and booze (for minors) were being transported/delivered occasionally by private planes landing on the lake. Didn't happen this particular evening, but the narc guys monitored and ID'ed the party houses and between the deps on sleds and a handful of unmarks from the local municipalities, simultaneous "knock & enters" brought the activity to a halt.

If this is going on out at Pearl, I'm tickled someone is being proactive; we don't need these nutjobs jeapodizing our families (and property). And they ultimately do.

That's great news. I was on jury duty in Stearns Co. last week and a quasi-illegal was convicted of selling meth to a stoolie in Melrose. Funny that the stoolie clammed up when it was his turn to testify. We later found out that the pusher had made a plea agreement but it was overturned and he had to go on trial. Guess that's why he didn't seem too surprised by the verdict although it was a pretty clearcut case.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
