SPRING LAKE PARK — A husband and wife were arrested Monday night, Oct. 19, at their Spring Lake Park, Minn., home after agents from the CEE-VI Drug and Gang Task Force executed a search warrant related to drug trafficking in Minnesota, according to Task Force Sgt. Ross Ardoff.

According to Ardoff, agents recovered 15.21 pounds of methamphetamine, more than $73,000 in cash and a .44 magnum handgun following a search of the couple's residence and a storage unit in the man's name near their home the following morning.
