Elgin Drug Bust



The Wabasha County Sheriff's Department arrested four people during a drug bust at a home in Elgin early Friday.
             
Authorities said this is the third time the home has been searched. In November 2013, homeowner, a former Winona resident, Daniel Gernes, was arrested for having a pound of methamphetamine shipped to his residence.

Because the house is less than two blocks away from Plainview-Elgin-Millville Elementary School, the charges will increase.

Four people were arrested during the bust, including one for possessing methamphetamine, and another for possessing a firearm.

The 49-year-old Gernes previously served a lengthy prison term after he was convicted of drug charges in Winona County in 2003. At that time he had been living near Minneiska.

Olmsted County authorities said Gernes was arrested in Rochester in November after he attempted to pick up a drug shipment that had been delivered at a home in Rochester.....
