Aberdeen Drug Bust
Large drug bust in Aberdeen
The Associated Press - August 11, 2017

ABERDEEN, S.D. - Five people will face charges in a drug bust at an Aberdeen business earlier this year that police say resulted in the largest seizure of methamphetamine in city history.

The bust occurred in February at a recycling service business. Authorities say they seized nearly 5 pounds of meth worth $415,000 on the street, along with about $4,000 in cash, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and syringes.

The American News reports that police just recently released details, citing an ongoing investigation.

All of the suspects are from Aberdeen. One has pleaded not guilty and one has pleaded guilty and been sentenced to 12 years in prison. Charges are pending against three others.

Police Capt. Eric Duven says the alleged drug operation was not connected to the business.
