Owatonna Police Make Drug Discovery
Owatonna Police recently made a drug discovery while investigating a suspicious vehicle report. In the department's Just the Facts newsletter, police responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle parked on Coolidge Street.
While officers were speaking with the occupant they noticed a "white crystal substance on a seat." The woman admitted to officers that there were controlled substances in the vehicle. "During a search of the vehicle, presumptive methamphetamine, heroin, THC cartridges, prescription medication and drug paraphernalia were uncovered," according to the newsletter. The 25-year-old female occupant of the vehicle was not arrested, but is facing charges for controlled substance crimes.
The Owatonna Police Department encourages you to Drive Smart, which "means parking the phone, setting the GPS and music before driving, keeping your eyes on the road during a conversation, not reaching down for a object on the floor, not eating messy food that could spill and take your attention off the road."
COPS IN THE COMMUNITY
Owatonna Detectives Christian Berg and Ben Johnson paid a visit to Owatonna Middle School and the classroom of Nicole Rhodes' forensic sciences "to talk about the physiological effects of drugs on the body, examples of illegal narcotics, death investigations and general law enforcements topics."
"We've been partnering with the middle school forensics class for a number of years, but put a pause on the partnership due to the COVID pandemic. We are excited for the collaboration to continue for the years to come," Just the Facts indicates.
