Two arrested in Grove City, Minn., after narcotics search warrant is executed

LITCHFIELD -- Two suspects, a 29-year-old woman from Grove City and a 31-year-old man from Raymond, are facing drug charges after being arrested Thursday morning in Grove City.

Both are being held in the Meeker County Jail. Charges pending against them include fifth-degree controlled substance crime, possession of drug paraphernalia, child neglect or endangerment, methamphetamine paraphernalia in the presence of a child, and legend drug charge.

Meeker County Sheriff Jeff Norlin said in a news release this weekend that the Meeker County Sheriff's Office and CEE-VI Drug and Gang Task Force executed a narcotics search warrant at the house after being tipped off by local residents. Norlin said the Sheriff's Office had received numerous complaints of suspicious activity.

Norlin urged the public to call local law enforcement if they see suspicious activity in their neighborhood. "Sometimes we cannot act on one call or circumstance, but over time and with the public's help, we can take action such as in this case," he said.
