RED LAKE - Three Twins Cities men were arrested Tuesday on the Red Lake Indian Reservation in possession of methamphetamine and marijuana.

The three men were arrested after Red Lake Police stopped two vehicles on the reservation at about 3 p.m. Tuesday, according to a release from the FBI office in Minneapolis. A minor whose age, gender and name were withheld also was detained, officials said.

In the searching the vehicles, approximately four pounds of high grade crystal methamphetamine was found, along with three pounds of marijuana and more than $5,000 in cash.

Arrested were Hernesto Montes, 21, of Brooklyn Park; Erivan Gomez, 19, Minneapolis and Miguel Rios-Quintero, 25, Minneapolis.

All three were transferred to the Beltrami County Jail in Bemidji, where they face drug-related charges.

Because the Red Lake Indian Reservation is a federal-jurisdiction reservation, some crimes are investigated by the FBI in conjunction with the Red Lake Tribal Police Department.
