Task Force Nets 5 Pounds of Heroin in Carver, Hennepin, and Ramsey Counties


A six-month investigation by Southwest Metro Drug Task Force led to the seizure of 5 pounds of heroin after officers executed search warrants in Carver, Hennepin and Ramsey counties.

In a press release Monday, officials said five pounds of heroin has a street value of more than $200,000.

Officials say the amount the task force seized is equivalent to one-fifth of the total amount of heroin drug task force teams in Minnesota seized last year.

Three people were arrested on Oct. 21 and two people were charged for drug-related crimes at the end of the investigation.
