The Fillmore County Sheriff's Department says felony drug sales and weapons charges are pending against a Preston man and woman following the conclusion of an ongoing drug investigation.
Authorities said 35-year-old Trevor Schweitzer and 31-year-old Nicole Olson were arrested following a search warrant executed Thursday shortly after 5:00 pm in Preston. Authorities found a loaded handgun along with suspected methamphetamine, and material for weighing and packaging.
According to Fillmore County Sheriff's Captain John DeGeorge, the arrest followed a lengthy investigation by the Southeastern Minnesota Narcotics Task Force, the South Central Drug Investigation Unit and the Fillmore County Sheriff's Office.
Schweitzer and Olson will be held in the Fillmore County Jail pending initial court appearances.
