Two arrested after police find marijuana, sawed-off shotgun in NE Rochester home

Posted: Updated:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Rochester police said officers discovered marijuana and an illegal weapon in a home and two people have been charged with felony drug sales.

Daniel Aaland, 32, and Jennifer Rose, 23, were being held Friday in the Olmsted County Jail on drug sales charges. Police said a month's long investigation led them to the 200 block of 11th Avenue Northeast.

A police spokesman told reporters Friday that a search warrant turned up "two pounds of marijuana, a large amount of cash and a sawed-off shotgun."

Police said they believe the two were selling marijuana from the home.

Aaland called the KTTC newsroom to give his version of the arrest at the home; he was angry that KTTC quoted police as saying they had found "two pounds of pot and a large amount of cash." 

"It was one pound, 10 grams and $1,720," said Aaland. 

"She was selling to a cop," Aaland told KTTC. "I don't sell to no one."

Aaland told KTTC it was correct that police did find his sawed-off shotgun in the search.

Minnesota District Court records show that Aaland appeared Friday before Judge Joseph Chase and faced three charges:  Drugs - 5th Degree - Sale, a felony; Machine Guns and ShorBarreleded Shotguns-Acts Prohibited-Own/Possess/Operate, a felony; and Possess Pistol/Assault Weapon-Conviction or Adjudication Delinquent for Crime of Violence, a felony.

Court records show that Rose also appeared Friday and faces three felony drug sales charges; one involves the sale of marijuana in a school/park/public housing zone. 

The next court appearance for both is set for July 3.
