Burnsville barber charged in meth-selling case


A 35-year-old Burnsville barbershop owner is accused of selling methamphetamine and having more than 11 pounds of the drug in his house, the most ever seized in a single site in Dakota County, the Pioneer Press reports.

Albert Morris Johnson is accused of distributing at least 50 grams on April 30, the day prior to his arrest by Dakota County drug agents, according to charges returned by a grand jury and filed Wednesday, the Pioneer Press reported.

Agents found $16,000 in cash and two handguns in a raid, the Pioneer Press reports.

The street value of the seized drugs exceeds $400,000, Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said earlier this month, the suburban Sun newspapers reported.

Agents did not find drugs in Johnson’s barbershop, the Star Tribune reported.

Johnson faces up to life in prison if convicted.
