Guilty Plea Entered For Significant Rochester Heroin Bust
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Rochester man is scheduled to be sentenced in October for a conviction stemming from a significant drug bust earlier this year.
42-year-old Sean Alexander today entered into a plea and admitted to a 3rd-degree charge involving drug sales. In exchange, Olmsted County prosecutors agreed to drop 2nd-degree and a 5th-degree charge stemming from his arrest following a traffic stop in February. The criminal complaint says Alexander and a 20-year-old woman were intercepted on I-90 near Dover by investigators in possession of a search warrant covering the vehicle, its occupants, and Alexander's home.
The court documents say more than 24 grams of heroin were found on Alexander while he was being processed into the Olmsted County jail. Another 39 grams of heroin was seized at his home, along with 13 ounces of marijuana, approximately 5 grams of marijuana wax, and items associated with the sale of drugs.
