Osakis man arrested after authorities find pot plants

Timothy Arthur Bearson, 47, of Osakis was arrested last Wednesday in connection with a marijuana investigation in Todd County.

Agents from the Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force and deputies from the Todd County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at a residence in Gordon Township on July 17, according to Sheriff Don Asmus.

Officers recovered 12 suspected marijuana plants and an estimated three to five pounds of processed marijuana that had been packaged for sales, Asmus said.

Later that evening, Todd County deputies arrested Bearson in connection to the recovery of the marijuana. He is being held at the Todd County Detention Center on charges of felony sales of a controlled substance.

Asmus said the matter has been forwarded to the Todd County Attorney’s Office for formal charges.
