March 22: Authorities release name of suspect in Evansville meth bust

A month-long drug investigation broke up a meth-dealing operation in Evansville and led to two arrests Thursday, authorities said.

They released the name of one of the suspects today - Mary Kay Henderson, 32, of Evansville. The other suspect, an Evansville man, was arrested and later released. Authorities said they expect to charge him in the near future and his name would be released at that time.

Agents from the West Central Minnesota Narcotics Task Force, with assistance from Douglas County sheriff's deputies and its K9 unit, executed a search warrant at 113 State Street.

Undercover agents had earlier purchased 18 grams of methamphetamine from individuals at that residence, according to the task force.

In addition to arresting two suspects, agents seized just under seven grams of meth, scales, packaging equipment and other drug paraphernalia.

On Monday, Henderson was charged with a first-degree controlled substance crime, which carries a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a fine of $1 million. She remains in custody at the Douglas County Jail on a $50,000 cash bail or $150,000 bond.
