Two charged with drug possession after apartment raid in Pipestone


Two people have been charged drug possession after an apartment in Pipestone, Minnesota, was raided.

The Buffalo Ridge Drug Task Force and the Pipestone Sheriff's Office carried out a raid on the apartment block at 920 2nd St. NW, on Thursday.

There they arrested Benjamin Walker, 42, and his girlfriend Jennifer Underwood, 34, after they found methamphetamine, cut pen straws, glass pipes and a spoon, according to KARE 11.

They have both been charged 3rd degree possession in a park/school zone, with Underwood's bond set $3,000, the Sheriff's Office told BringMeTheNews.

Walker, who has distinctive face-tattoos, was also charged with possession of ammunition – he's banned from possessing firearms/ammo because of a previous conviction – and his bail was set at $30,000.

WCCO reports that the Arizona Department of Corrections assisted in the search, with KARE 11 noting Walker was convicted of burglary in Arizona in 2013, and is still under supervision for the crime.
