Police bust marijuana operation in central Minnesota

Police in Waite Park (just west of St. Cloud) have arrested a man for selling a government-outlawed plant.

A two-month investigation led authorities into a storage facility where they found 146 one-pound vacuum-sealed bags of marijuana worth about $550,000. Police proceeded to the 48-year-old suspect's where they uncovered $22,000 in cash along with a rifle and handgun.

The suspect was arrested at his job Tuesday and taken into custody. That's right-- the overseer of a six-figure pot operation was still clocking in at his day job.
