Two people have been charged after a search of a Blaine mobile home on Thursday turned up 3.4 pounds of meth, six guns and more than $134,500.
Jeremy Bisceglia, 48 and Jordon Marie Cihak, 22, were charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance after narcotics officers from several north-metro law enforcement agencies searched the residence at 113 116th Av. NE.
The drug seizure "would be considered large," said Lt. Bryon Fuerst with the Anoka County Sheriff's Office. "Approximately 3.4 pounds of methamphetamine is a fairly significant seizure."
Officers approached the residence about 12:45 a.m., ramming the door open to get inside, where they found Cihak.
In the walk-in closet of one bedroom, two large safes contained two rifles, four handguns and cash. Most of the meth was found in the laundry room in plastic baggies inside a tube sock inside the water softener.
An officer waited outside for Bisceglia, who was known to ride a motorcycle. When one approached the residence, the officer chased, stopped and arrested the man.
"The collaborative law enforcement efforts in this case have successfully attacked criminal activity," said Anoka County Sheriff James Stuart. "I am proud of the team effort put forth to improve our communities."
