Search warrant turns up meth in Hardwick

A search warrant executed in a Hardwick home Sunday night yielded meth and drug paraphernalia and the arrest of a 37-year-old Hardwick woman.
According to the complaint filed Monday in Rock County District Court, Deputy Dallas Hamm had applied for a search warrant based on information that Lucas Strassburg was selling drugs at 207 East 1st Street in Hardwick.
At 9 p.m. Sunday, Hamm and several other officers arrived at the residence to execute the search warrant, and Nicole Halverson came to the door and said Strassburg was at work.
The complaint states that she was escorted outside during the search, which turned up .4 grams of meth, a pipe that tested positive for meth in the kitchen and traces of meth in Strassburg’s bedroom.
Halverson was arrested for fifth-degree drug possession and was taken to the Nobles County Jail in Worthington where she tested positive for marijuana, methamphetamines and amphetamines.
The felony charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in jail and a $10,000 fine.
According to the Rock County Sheriff’s Office, a complaint warrant for Strassburg was filed late Monday afternoon.
The .4 grams of meth seized Sunday in Hardwick has a street value of roughly $30, but Minnesota drug laws make meth possession in even a small amount a felony level offense.
