Drug charges, underage drinking charges result from Almelund party bust
Sheriff’s personnel broke up a house party very early Sunday morning, Jan 12 resulting in two arrests ad charges against Alexis Ann O’Brien, 18 (speed) and Eric Thomas Leintz, 26, (mushrooms and LSD) for possession of controlled substances. A number of adults between 18 and 21 were cited for underage consumption and several for fleeing authorities.
The sheriff’s department reports an anonymous complaint, a little after midnight Saturday but those partying inside the home, on Wenell Avenue in Almelund, refused entry when deputies made their presence known. Law enforcement maintained a perimeter keeping the area secure and a search warrant was sought. A judge signed a search warrant about 2 a.m. based on what deputies had observed taking place inside the dwelling. Multiple underage consumption citations were issued and controlled susbtances (marijuana and halucinogens) and paraphernalia were seized. There was a theft of a box of .22 caliber rounds reported from a truck at the East Rush Lake access Jan. 10.
