Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Malinda Hanson said the suspected drug was taken on Monday when members of the sheriff’s office and Southeast Minnesota Violent Crimes Enforcement Team executed a search warrant. 

Hanson identified the target of the search warrant as 44-year-old Dennis Cortez Siggers. Law enforcement stopped a vehicle he was driving back to his residence and detained him prior to the raid shortly after 5 p.m.
