Christopher Gasca, 28, is charged with second-degree sale of methamphetamine and amphetamine in a school zone.

In March, the Windom Police Department was contacted by a Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputy in reference to a controlled substance buy of methamphetamine that was allegedly going to take place between an undercover agent and Gasca at his residence.

Gasca’s residence in Windom is across the street from the back side of the Red Rock Ridge Area Learning Center, therefore falling in a school zone.

The undercover agent purchased one bag of methamphetamine from the deputy for $50. The deputy was given possession of the bag, which contained .4 grams of meth.

The undercover agent also purchased meth under the lead of the Buffalo Ridge Drug Task Force one week after the controlled buy, again at Gasca’s residence. Gasca was then arrested and booked Sept. 5 into the Nobles County Jail.

In November, Gasca entered a guilty plea agreement, which was upheld during Wednesday’s hearing. He will now serve the 92 months at the corrections facility and be under supervised probation for 20 years. He also owes the court $1,202 in fees.
