Minnesota residents may be surprised to learn that a recent study showed that at least one immediate family member of 45 percent of adults in the United States have been incarcerated either in jail or in prison. This figure is a lot higher than what was previously estimated. The survey classified immediate family member as either a parent, sibling, spouse, grandparent or child.
Three Minnesota men face a raft of misdemeanor and felony charges after a search of their Lake Crystal home allegedly led to the discovery of illegal drugs, drug paraphernalia, stolen property and a firearm. Agents from the Minnesota River Valley Drug Task Force say they searched the residence after receiving tips from local residents about suspicious activity including frequent brief visits. The men, who are 22, 25 and 30 years of age, heard the charges against them on Feb. 25 in Blue Earth County District Court.
