Three Alexandria men and one Minneapolis woman were arrested for second-degree controlled substance crimes.

Agents from the West Central Minnesota Narcotics Task Force arrested the suspects, including Eric Joseph Williams, 27; Justin Stewart Branby, 38; and Travis Anthony Davis, 25, all of Alexandria, and Dominique Renee White, 24, of Minneapolis, on Tuesday, August 11.


According to a report from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, agents from the task force conducted a narcotics purchase of ecstasy and crack cocaine at a residence at 1315 Irving Street in Alexandria. The agents purchased the drugs from Branby and Williams.

Earlier that day, Williams met with Davis in the parking lot of a local business and agents said they witnessed a transaction. After the exchange, agents arrested Davis and White, who was the driver of the vehicle.

The report stated that $750 in task force "buy monies" was found under the passenger seat of the vehicle.

Williams, who was driving a different vehicle, was followed back to the residence on Irving Street and delivered the crack cocaine, according to authorities.

Agents then arrested Williams and Branby at the residence and conducted a search of the house. Branby was found in possession of $50 of task force "buy monies."

As of Thursday, August 20, Williams, Branby and Davis remain in custody in the Douglas County Jail. Their bail has been set at $10,000 cash or $100,000 bond.

White also remains in custody in the Douglas County Jail, but with bail set at $5,000 cash or $50,000 bond.

The Alexandria Police Department and the Douglas County Sheriff's Office assisted the task force agents.
