The second of two people, facing felony charges after a drug bust reportedly uncovered more than 9 grams of methamphetamine on Sept. 30, is guilty.
Jon Faas, 25, of Austin, pleaded guilty to fifth-degree drug possession Friday in Mower County Court as part of a plea agreement. A second charge for second-degree drug possession of more than 6 grams of methamphetamine may be dismissed.
Joshua Faas, 27, of St. Ansgar, was sentenced to 67 months in prison in the same case for second-degree drug possession of more than 6 grams of methamphetamine.
Police arrested the men near Eighth Street and First Avenue Northwest after 1 a.m. Sept. 30. According to the court complaint, the men were in a car parked the wrong way and appeared to duck and make furtive movements as an officer approached. The complaint added Jon exited the vehicle but was ordered back inside. Joshua then tried to exit and was also ordered back inside at gunpoint. After searching the vehicle, police reportedly found 8.85 grams of meth in a briefcase and 0.6 grams of meth in Jon’s hat.
