“A high-volume cocaine pipeline between Texas and Minnesota, with ties to one of Mexico’s most violent crime syndicates, was severed in early morning raids Wednesday by federal agents, authorities said.
One of the Minnesotans indicted and arrested is David P. Harlander, a St. Joseph resident employed by Stearns County. He worked in the county’s building services unit and had “some” access to the Sheriff’s Department offices.”
