Eight arrested in drug busts linked to Pequot school


Eight people — four adults and four juveniles — were arrested Friday in a drug bust in which the majority of the arrests involved the sale of narcotics within close proximity of the Pequot Lakes High School.

Sgt. Joe Meyer of the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Department, and commander of the Lakes Area Drug Investigation Division, said convictions for those crimes would carry a stiffer penalty than drug sales at a different location.
