Drug charges dismissed, another investigation under way, Beccue says

WILLMAR -- Six felony drug charges, including charges of first-degree drug sale and conspiracy and fifth-degree drug sale, conspiracy and liability for crimes of another, against David Dennis Jacobson, 48, of rural Blomkest, have been dismissed in Kandiyohi County District Court.

The dismissals were made Thursday, according to court records. County Attorney Boyd Beccue declined to comment on the dismissals Friday, but did say that "another investigation is under way, and since it is an open investigation, we cannot comment further."

Also dismissed Thursday were a gross misdemeanor charge for possessing a pistol or assault weapon as a user of controlled substance and a misdemeanor for drug possession.

The first five felony charges were filed after a search warrant was served Oct. 27, 2008, on Jacobson's home. The search unveiled almost a pound of methamphetamine, a number of guns and more than 11 ounces of marijuana. Jacobson's next appearance on those charges was supposed to be a March 16 pre-trial hearing, with a jury trial on March 18 and 19. The sixth felony charge, a first-degree sale charge filed Feb. 24, was for allegedly selling 15.6 grams of methamphetamine to an informant for the CEE-VI Drug Task Force last fall.
