One man was arrested, and drugs and $667 were seized early Tuesday morning during a search warrant execution of a Fergus Falls residence.

A search at 1:18 a.m. of a house in the 500 block of West Maple Avenue by the West Central Narcotics Task Force and Fergus Falls police produced marijuana plant and growing equipment, about 37 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, prescription pills, and $667, according to a news release.

A 19-year-old Fergus Falls man was arrested for fifth-degree drugs-controlled substance.

The investigation is ongoing and further charges are expected.

    I am totally happy we have neighbors like these that like to talk to cops and under covers trying to bust small time dealer. next to the house that got raided for close too nothing. sounds like a waste of cops time over a small amount of narcotics. thanks to spring clean up we can put people in jail over drugs that are not legal. It just is like whats the point of catching one person and posting it online. Word of mouth travels faster than things on the internet. P.S neighbors across from the raided house thanks for filming all the traffic in and out of that house late night, for a warrant.

    That sure seems to have the tone of a not-so-veiled threat against anyone in a neighborhood who sees suspicious activity and checks things out before calling the police to deal with a possibly criminal activity.

    There are are many large cities where crime is rampant, and nobody dares to fight back against the dealers and thieves and thugs because the criminals put the word on the streets that anyone who “snitches” or even talks to police will pay a horrible price.

    Is that your intent here, to intimidate anyone who might fight back against the druggies whom you seem to favor?
    I believe that if we are not eternally vigilant against even “small time” criminals, we will surely be overrun by the barbarians who commit the most heinous of crimes. Apparently you fiffer from my view.
