A drug overdose led to the arrest of a 41-year-old Princeton man after drug agents seized more than $23,000, several dangerous weapons and controlled substances.
Anthony Steven Kalland was charged Monday, April 5, in Crow Wing County District Court with felony counts of being in possession of a dangerous weapon as a convicted felon and fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance.
According to the criminal complaint filed against Kalland, a narcotics investigator with the Lakes Area Drug Investigative Division was informed at 3 a.m. April 2 of a drug overdose in Onamia. The individual was revived and provided information as to the source of the fentanyl she had consumed prior to the overdose.
A search warrant was granted and officers located seven individuals, including Kalland. Inside Kalland’s bedroom was an open safe containing three boxes of .40 caliber ammunition, white powder on a mirror and a folded piece of paper containing a substance that field tested positive methamphetamine. Investigators also located a glass pipe containing a substance that field tested positive methamphetamine and $6,000 in Kalland’s pocket.
In a statement to agents, Kalland admitted that the safe in the room was his and that the white powder on the mirror was methamphetamine, which he last used on March 31 for his birthday.
Officers also searched his vehicle and found a duffle bag in the hatchback portion of the vehicle, which contained his Social Security card inside a black leather wallet, and two large capacity .40 caliber pistol magazines containing .40 caliber ammunition.
Underneath a couch cushion in the living room officers located a loaded .40 caliber Glock pistol. A total of $23,081.00 was seized from the residence.
Kalland has prior convictions for fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance from 2015 and 2018 and for being in possession of stolen firearms in 2015.
Kalland, who posted bail and is no longer in Crow Wing County Jail, is scheduled to next appear in court May 25.
