LARCHWOOD, Iowa — Two southwest Minnesotans were arrested Friday following a K-9 sniff that led to the discovery of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
According to a press release by the Lyon County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded Sept. 27 to the report of a person around a vehicle that had been acting suspicious. Scott Ehde, 50, of Hardwick and Khamphone Thammalong, 30, of Worthington were arrested and booked into the Lyon County Jail in Rock Rapids, Iowa.
They've been charged with the following:
Ehde: possession of marijuana drug paraphernalia; possession of methamphetamine drug paraphernalia; possession of cannabinoid oil; possession of marijuana; possession of methamphetamine; introducing drugs to a correctional facility.
Thammalong: possession of methamphetamine drug paraphernalia; possession of methamphetamine; drug tax stamp violation; possession with the intent to distribute marijuana; fugitive from justice for having a valid Minnesota arrest warrant.
According to Nobles County District Court records, a warrant for Thammalong's arrest was issued following an Aug. 31 incident in which he allegedly ran on foot from law enforcement near Morningside Drive in Worthington. He reportedly had two other active warrants for his arrest prior to running from law enforcement.
