The Dakota County Drug Task Force confiscated over 400 pounds of pot in a historic marijuana bust in Inver Grove Heights Wednesday, reported WCCO-TV.
Scott Bradley Cunningham, 42, of Inver Grove Heights, 52-year-old Brian Lee Speldrick, Holly Joann Swenson, 28, of Rosemount and Jerilyn Reis, 41, of Kiester were all charged with first-degree controlled substance crime with intent to distribute and first-degree controlled substance crime with possession, according to the Dakota County Attorney's Office.
"This is one of the largest marijuana seizures in Dakota County's history," said Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom.
According to the criminal complaint, drug task force agents executed a search warrant at Cunningham's house at 9244 Inver Grove Trail in Inver Grove Heights on Nov. 4, 2011. While there, agents recovered 14.42 pounds of marijuana. Several guns were also seized, reported WCCO-TV.
On Nov. 28, agents received a call from an anonymous tipster, who stated that agents missed a secret room during the previous pot bust. The tipster said the room, concealed by a false wall, contained a large amount of pot, reported WCCO-TV.
Police estimate the street value of the marijuana to be more than $1,000,000.
