Two Arrested in Darwin for Assault and Drugs 11 Jan 14

Two search warrants executed at a Darwin home Friday yielded arrests on assault and drug charges.

The Meeker County Sheriff’s Office says at 9 a.m., they and the CEE VI Drug Task Force assisted the McLeod County Sheriff’s Office and the Hutchinson Police Department in the execution of a search warrant at 102 North 3rd Street in Darwin.

They arrested a 54-year-old male on probable cause first degree felony assault for an earlier incident in McLeod County. That suspect was taken to the McLeod County Jail.
