MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Two women and one man were arrested Tuesday morning for possession of heroin, cocaine and marijuana in connection with the drug bust in Elk River, according to the Sherburne County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities said 19-year-old Lashun Witherspoon Jr. of Elk River was arrested for first-degree possession of cocaine and third-degree possession of heroin. Jameela Wright, 22 of Elk River, was arrested for fifth-degree possession of marijuana and Jessica Gabrielson, 27 of Minneapolis, was arrested for fifth-degree possession of marijuana.

The Sherburne County Drug Task Force conducted an investigation into alleged drug activity on the 18000 block of Vance Circle in Elk River. It led to investigators obtaining a search warrant for the residence, which was executed at 7 a.m. Tuesday.

During the drug bust, investigators seized once ounce of cocaine, more than four grams of heroin and more than 100 grams of marijuana. Authorities said they had a street value of several thousand dollars.

Witherspoon Jr., Wright and Gabrielson were all arrested without incident and transported to the Sherburne County Jail, where they remain pending criminal charges.
