ROYALTON-A tip about a stolen truck and camper led investigators to two arrests and the seizure of counterfeit money and methamphetamine.
The Morrison County Sheriff's Office reported at 1:36 a.m. Thursday, deputies were asked to assist the Royalton Police Department with a possible stolen vehicle at an apartment building in Royalton. The police department received a tip there was a stolen Dodge truck at the building and a stolen camper trailer at a residence in rural Stearns County.
The Royalton Police Department and Morrison County Sheriff's Office checked the Birch Villa Apartments and located a Dodge truck with altered license plates belonging to a 28-year-old man. During the investigation, it was learned the truck was reported stolen from Detroit Lakes.
Located inside the truck was a fake ID with the photo of a 26-year-old Royalton woman and several fake check blanks. A Morrison County investigator and a Royalton police officer later made contact with the woman, which resulted in her arrest for receiving stolen property. A search warrant was executed at her apartment, where several counterfeit bills were seized along with methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
