MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Eight people have been arrested in an apparent school drug ring in the Pequot Lakes area.

According to the Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl, the charges are the result of a four-month-long investigation into the sale and distribution of marijuana and prescription drugs on the grounds of Pequot Lakes High School.

Four adults and four juveniles were arrested.

The adults are 20-year-old Jonathan Matthew Ward, 21-year-old Bradley Eugene Huesmann, and 18-year-old Cassandra May Hilgers, all of Pequot Lakes, and 18-year-old Matthew Ryan Peterson, of Breezy Point.

The juveniles were brought to a juvenile detention facility.

All were arrested March 9 by the Lakes Area Drug Investigative Division for various controlled substance crimes.

All suspects are being held pending formal charges.
