Raid near Dassel nets drugs, weapons and a cannon

Two arrested in Meeker County search that turned up what appeared to be a functioning cannon


DASSEL — Two individuals are in the Meeker County Jail after a search warrant turned up drugs, firearms, surveillance equipment and what may be a cannon.

The CEE-VI Drug and Gang Task Force executed a narcotics search warrant Monday morning at a home in the 17000 block of state Highway 15 South, near Dassel.

A 59-year-old man and a 56-year-old woman were arrested after methamphetamine, suspected LSD, marijuana, numerous firearms, surveillance cameras and what appeared to be a functioning cannon were seized at their residence, according to a news release from the task force.

The two face charges of first-degree controlled substance crime, as well as other controlled substance- and firearms-related charges.

The Task Force was assisted on the scene by the Kandiyohi County SWAT Team and the Meeker County Sheriff’s Office.


The case is still under investigation.
