Meth lab busted
On the morning of July 5 the Houston County Sheriff’s Department, Caledonia Police Department and Southeast Minnesota Narcotics/Gang Task Force executed a search warrant at 1017 Sunrise Lane in Caledonia and found a methamphetamine laboratory.
A meth lab response team was called in to safely deactivate and dispose of the lab, a sheriff’s press release said.
Jason J. Cole, 35, and Brianne L. Wood, 31, both of Caledonia, are being held in the Houston County Jail on multiple drug charges. Judge James A. Fabian set bail at $50,000 unconditional or $25,000 with conditions for both suspects.
Their next court date is set for July 16.
Authorities said two children lived at the address and are being cared for by family.
The Caledonia Fire Department and Caledonia Ambulance assisted at the scene.
