Big drug bust in Pine Island

PINE ISLAND, MN (KTTC-TV) -- Late Wednesday afternoon, deputies hit the jackpot. A drug investigation in Pine Island lead to a big discovery.

Deputies aren't saying much, but we do know that as many as 60 marijuana plants were taken from a home in Pine Island.

That home is located on the 700 block of South Main Street.

Goodhue County deputies served a search warrant around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. One person was in the house and was arrested without struggle.

Goodhue County Captain says that person is in jail and will likely be charged Thursday.

Deputies also said that they confiscated 30 small plants under a foot in size and about 30 more plants that were over 4 feet tall.

When asked if they confiscated any other packaged marijuana, deputes said they were able to tell us at this time.
